STP Opportunities

The Summer Treatment Program (STP) is a comprehensive program for children with ADHD and related behavioral, emotional and learning challenges. The STP has successfully helped more than 3,000 children and families and is composed of evidence-based intensive treatments incorporated into an eight-week therapeutic summer camp setting. Group and tailored individual treatment plans are focused on improving problem-solving, academic functioning and social skills—while also incorporating recreational, age-appropriate games and group activities. 

We offer training opportunities for students--both undergraduate and graduate from universities and colleges across the U.S.--through our nationally acclaimed Summer Treatment Program.


  • Applications accepted through Spring 2017. No application deadline.
  • We receive a large number of applications, apply early.
