The Summer Enrichment Institute (SEI) at Judge Baker Children's Center is a five-week day program that teaches children ages 6-12 effective ways to manage ADHD and other behavior issues.
SUMMER 2016 ~ July 5 to August 5 from 8:00a.m. to 3:00p.m.
The Summer Enrichment Institute is based on the Summer Treatment Program (STP), named a Model Program in Child and Family Mental Health by the American Psychological Association and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and a program of the year by Children and Adults with ADHD (CHADD), the national parent advocacy group for children with ADHD. STP is also listed in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.
- Children will enjoy making new friends, improving sports and art skills, and developing relationships with staff members.
- SEI is a highly structured and supportive program that leads to behavioral gains, improved social skills, and helps prevent against summer erosion of school year functioning.
- Year Round Services: The SEI helps generalize summer gains by staying connected to families year round through a monthly support group, outreach to school education teams, and parent consultations.
