On the campus of Noble Academy, 3310 Horse Pen Creek Road, Greensboro, NC 27410.

How many children will attend?

We plan to enroll 15 children for the 2016 NCSPK. Children will be sub-grouped by age during some activities. All age groups include both boys and girls.

When can I drop off and pick up my child?

Morning drop off is from 8:00-8:30am; afternoon pick up is from 4:30-5:00pm.

Who provides the morning educational and art instruction?

Classroom instruction is provided by experienced teachers from Noble Academy, all of whom have extensive, highly specialized experience teaching children with ADHD and learning disabilities.

How will the teachers know what kind of educational instruction my child needs?

The curriculum and daily academic lessons will be developed by the teachers in consultation with the Director of Educational Programming. Plans will be developed based on feedback from each child’s current classroom teacher(s), information collected from parents during the registration process, and data provided by the Measure of Academic Program (MAP) assessment given the first week of the program. Click here from more info about the MAP. Within each class, teachers will provide multi-sensory, systematic instruction that focuses on the needs and strengths of each child.


Who supervises the afternoon group activities?

Each group will be supervised by one lead counselor and 3 additional counselors with a less than 4:1 ratio.  All counselors are graduate or advanced undergraduate students with appropriate training and experience in working with children. All counselors will be supervised by the NCSPK Directors and Assistant Director.

What kind of training does the staff have?

The senior staff of NCSPK includes licensed psychologists and special education teachers, who have received specialized training from Dr. William Pelham’s STP team. All counselors and lead counselors will receive one week of intensive training prior to the start of camp and thereafter be supervised by the NCSPK Directors and Assistant Director once camp has begun.

Is parenting assistance offered?

Parent meetings will be held weekly, every Monday from 5:00 - 6:00 pm. All meetings will be led by licensed psychologists from the ADHD Clinic at UNCG.  The purpose of the parent meetings is to:

  • Increase parental understanding of ADHD
  • Help parents develop specialized parenting skills to improve parent-child relations and child behavior at home
  • Prepare parents for the transition from summer to the new school year

Children will have the opportunity to go on five Friday field trips, the locations for which are to be determined. Participation in field trips is contingent upon parental permission and satisfactory behavior (see our Calendar page for further details).

Do you provide transportation?

We do not provide transportation to or from Noble Academy. We will, however, provide all transportation for field trips using Noble Academy vehicles.

 

My child takes medication during the day. How will medication be administered?

You will be asked to complete a form giving us permission to give your child medication as needed.
