The program's purpose is to maximize success in daily living in order to remain in the least restrictive environment. The focus of this STAP, based on
Pelham Summer Treatment Program (STP), is to improve self-regulation, social skill development, and emotional functioning. A social learning approach is used with primary focus on achieving the following overarching goals:
1) Develop the child's problem solving skills, social skills, and social awareness to enable them to sustain positive peer interactions and relationships.
2) Develop the child's ability to follow through with instructions, to complete tasks that commonly remain unfinished, and to comply with adult requests.
3) Improve self‑regulation by developing competencies in areas necessary for daily life,
4) Teach parents how to develop, reinforce, and maintain positive changes made during STAP.
