It is important to start planning early for summer programs, as many have limited availability. The Complex Care Center at Cincinnati Children's offers resources to patients and families to help in the planning process.
When searching for a summer program for your child, it is important to find a program that focuses on your child's interests and can meet your child's developmental and medical needs. Specialty programming that serves children with specific medical conditions or diagnoses and traditional programming with integration are both available.
