summer program for teens 14-18

Need summer services for your teen with disabilities?

Aptiv's Summer Program provides teens with disabilities, ages 14-18, with an opportunity to reduce their summer learning loss through access to tools they may need to be more successful in their academic, home, and social lives. The program revolves around a rich curriculum that focuses on your teen’s individual needs and allows them to be able to learn and retain life-long skills.

Your teen will have opportunities to engage in the community and develop social skills, opportunities for exercise, access to professional behavioral support, and flexibility in scheduling.

Summer Program services

The program curriculum is structured around meeting individual needs while learning applicable and relevant life skills in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Topics and activities are constructed by experienced staff members who understand the value of your teen’s mental, physical, and emotional health and wellness. Each topic is adjusted to account for your teens' development level and care needs. The curriculum works to incorporate practical life skills into every age group.

Curriculum Examples:

  • Time and Money Management

  • Grocery Shopping and Meal Prep

  • Household Responsibilities

  • Team Building Exercises

  • Career Exploration

Community integration

The Summer Program includes regular community outings that integrate your teen into their communities through fun area activities and events while guiding them through skills such as pedestrian safety, stranger danger, and appropriate public behavior.
