Advanced Pragmatics – Social Skills Camp
At the Advanced Pragmatics Social Skills Camp, campers will go on outings, meet new people their age, learn how to become more independent, explore the community, and take part in a summer camp designed specifically for them. Attendees will have the opportunity to apply the social skills they have learned over the years to practical situations. This camp is designed for people who have high-functioning autism or other social language challenges. We are located in Los Alamitos/Rossmoor, which is near Long Beach, Cerritos, and Seal Beach. Taught by a licensed Speech and Language Pathologist, campers receive expert social skills training in a fun, comfortable environment.

People who participate in our summer camp must be fully verbal, able to stay with a group, and follow directions.
Campers will meet at Rush Park in Los Alamitos, CA (3021 Blume Dr, Rossmoor, CA 90720) at 9:00am daily, at the picnic tables by the playground. Please arrive no later than 8:45am. Camp will end at 12:00pm (with the exception of days we go on farther field trips; parents will be given plenty of prior notice of these dates) and campers will be available for pick up at the picnic tables by the playground at Rush Park. This summer, we are pleased to offer week long camps for pre-teens, teens, and young adults.
