Many of us remember summer camp fondly – the games you play; the songs you sing; and the friends you make. But children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorders don’t always have the chance to participate. Besides missing the fun, they also miss out on opportunities to learn new skills and experience success outside of school. To address these concerns, Seattle Children’s Hospital and the University of Washington have come together to offer Camp Sea STAR for children with ADHD and Apex Summer Camp for children with autism. These joint, evidence-based programs are designed to improve social skills and self-esteem of children with ADHD or autism and their peers or siblings with structured, day camp activities. Dr. Mark Stein of Seattle Children’s is featured in this interview.
