Unlocking Summer Success: The Benefits of Therapeutic Preschool Programs

Enrolling your child in a summer therapeutic preschool program offers year-round support and specialized services vital for their developmental progress. From speech and language development to social skills enhancement, these programs provide a nurturing environment for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental delays to thrive.

Consistent Support:

Summer therapeutic preschool programs offer daily support from a team of professionals, including speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, ABA therapists, and feeding therapists. With a low student-to-teacher ratio, children receive individualized care tailored to their unique needs, fostering comprehensive development in critical areas.

Targeted Developmental Areas:

  1. Speech and Language: Dedicated speech-language pathologists facilitate speech and language development, ensuring children receive targeted intervention within the classroom environment.
  2. Play Skills: Structured play sessions encourage the development of appropriate play skills, promoting social interaction and peer engagement.
  3. Feeding Therapy: Feeding therapists address challenges related to autism and sensory issues, incorporating specialized techniques during snack times to support children’s feeding skills.
  4. Motor Skill Enhancement: Occupational therapists implement activities like art to enhance fine motor skills, fostering dexterity and coordination in children.
  5. Receptive and Expressive Language: Storytime and music activities target both receptive and expressive language skills, enhancing children’s ability to process and communicate effectively.
  6. Sensory Integration: Through sensory bins, finger painting, and sensory-focused activities, children develop sensory integration skills crucial for daily functioning.
  7. Social Skills Development: Therapeutic preschool programs provide structured opportunities for social interaction, empowering children to build friendships and navigate social situations with confidence.

Empowering Your Child’s Journey:

Summer therapeutic preschool programs ensure that your child’s progress doesn’t pause when summer arrives. By maintaining consistency and offering specialized support, these programs lay the foundation for continued growth and success in key developmental areas.

"After almost 2 years our son’s time at CST Academy has come to an end. The preschool program has done wonders for him. Ms Jaclyn is such a warm, kind and patient teacher. She and my son’s OT (Ms. Nikki) and ST (Ms. Erika) worked together to ensure he was meeting all of his goals. The level of collaboration between all therapies shows how dedicated they are to helping your child reach their full potential. They have all made such an impact on him, it’s amazing to see the changes since he started there. He has blossomed into a strong, confident boy who is more than prepared to start his new school in a few weeks. We will always fondly remember our time at CST Academy. Can’t recommend them enough!"
"I worked with CST Academy over a period of about 10 months. They are absolutely incredible! I also referred a friend to their program and the progress his child made just blew him away! Usually, I don’t write reviews unless I feel strongly compelled one way or the other, and in this case I do! You cannot go wrong here. I would not trust my children to anyone else. Call them and see for yourself. I have seen other programs and there is just no comparison."
