SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: If your child is having a difficult time making friends, we can help! In collaboration with our ABA therapy company, Interventions Unlimited, and using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), this program will focus on improving your child’s social communication by teaching core strategies that will allow him or her to develop and maintain friendships with peers. We utilize a variety of social skills curricula to teach language skills and promote social interaction. Our activities are fun, creative, and designed specifically to target your child’s social challenges. Through cooperative games and team building activities, the children practice perspective-taking and emotional self-control, learn to recognize verbal and nonverbal social cues, as well as practice conversational skills and good sportsmanship. Most importantly, they learn how to make friends and have FUN in a low student to teacher ratio environment. We also have in-house field trips and other fun activities such as visits from the Ice truck incorporated into the camp.

Academics, and more. Social Skills.

CAMP LOCATION: We are located in Oviedo, just east of Orlando off 417 Red bug lake road. 848 Executive Drive, Oviedo Fl 32765.

CAMP FACILITIES: We have over 8 therapy rooms in our Alpine Academy and 3 therapy rooms in our Interventions Unlimited building. the classrooms are small with great computers and activities, toys, and learning material.

A team of highly qualified educators and behavior analysts work with both students and parents to help children reach their maximum potential. Using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and evidence-based teaching methods, our dedicated and trained staff will teach the necessary skills for success in a fun and loving environment. Low student to teacher ratio and data driven instruction drive the overwhelming success of the Academy. We serve children with autism, Asperger's Syndrome, PDD-NOS, ADHD, ADD, SLD Down Syndrome, and children without a specific diagnosis.

Why choose Alpine Academy for your child?

• Aiming High: At Alpine Academy, we work with you and your child by establishing mutually agreed upon individual educational goals, which are reviewed and revised quarterly. Students are placed at their individual instructional level and allowed to master skills as rapidly and frequently as they are able. Students advance only after solid mastery of prerequisite skills. We have high expectations for our students and spend extensive time with each student to ensure his or her skill development reaches its maximum potential.

• Achieving: At Alpine Academy, student achievement is our top priority. We ensure that students will be successful by selecting only evidence-based sequences of instruction and continuously measuring progress toward selected objectives. We constantly evaluate our teaching methods to ensure that the students are learning efficiently. We focus on creating a positive and rewarding learning experience, so the students enjoy learning and become motivated learners, as learning is a life-long journey.

• Collaborating: At Alpine, parents are our most valuable educational partners. We provide individualized attention to each family's specific needs to ensure skills learned in the classroom transition smoothly into each child's home and daily lives. We understand the importance of your involvement and actively work with you to facilitate positive outcomes.

Educational Programs
Social Academic Program

Have you often felt that your child may be too “high functioning” for a self contained ESE classroom, yet he or she is “struggling” in a regular education classroom? If so, our school may be the option for you. At Alpine Academy, we have designed a specific program to help meet the needs of your child. Our social academic program is designed to meet the particular academic and social needs of high functioning students with Autism, ADD, ADHD, and Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD).

The core curriculum used in our academic programs is Direct Instruction. DI is a model that emphasizes carefully-planned lessons focused on learning in small increments and focuses instruction around clearly-defined teaching tasks. DI is based on the theory that by using clear instruction and teaching to mastery, teachers can accelerate learning for all students – high performers as well as students with learning disabilities.

Under DI, students will be placed in flexible, homogeneous groups in reading, language, and math. Students are expected to score 90% or higher on the daily and weekly assessments. Skills are taught and scaffolded along the way so that 85% of each lesson reviews previously taught skills and 15% of instruction is introducing new skills. Students advance through the program only once they have demonstrated mastery of the concepts. Students who show exceptional progress can fast-cycle through lessons if they show continued mastery of concepts. Students are individually assessed every 5 to 10 lessons, and their progress is meticulously tracked by the teacher.

Language and Learning Skills Program

This program is intended for students who need basic language and academic skills. This program uses the ABLLS-R (Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills) as an assessment tool, curriculum guide, and skills-tracking system. ABLL-R is used to help guide the instruction of language and critical learning skills for children with autism or other developmental disabilities. The ABLLS-R provides a comprehensive review of 544 skills from 25 skill areas including language, social interaction, self-help, academic, and motor skills which most typically developing children acquire prior to entering kindergarten. The task items within each skill area are arranged from simple to more complex tasks. Expressive language skills are assessed based upon the behavioral analysis of language as presented by Dr. B.F. Skinner in his book, Verbal Behavior (1957).

Functional/Vocational Skills Program

Our Functional Skills Program is designed to prepare students for greater independence through functional skills instruction. This program uses the Assessment of Functional Living Skills(AFLS) to assess, track, and develop an appropriate sequence of goals for learners. The AFLS tracks progress in six different modules: Basic Living Skills, Home Skills, Community Participation Skills, Vocational Skills, and Independent Living Skills.
