Autism camp comes to Texas State


Texas State is holding an autism summer camp next month to address the lack of specially designed leisure and recreational summer programs to meet the needs of children with autism and their families in the community.

The 2010 Texas State Autism Summer Camp will feature three one-week sessions with a multi-activity program. The program is a partnership among the Texas State Department of Health and Human Performance, the Clinic for Autism Research, Evaluation and Support, and San Marcos CISD.

The camp is designed to provide children with autism access to quality summer camp experiences while being sensitive to each child’s unique abilities. The children will experience music, art, crafts, sensory, motor and many other fun-filled activities. The 2010 autism summer camp will be the first of its kind in the San Marcos community.

The camp will be held at Hernandez Elementary School at 333 Stagecoach Trail in San Marcos on the following dates:

Session I:  July 12–15 (Monday–Thursday), 9 a.m.–1 p.m.

Session II: July 19–22 (Monday–Thursday), 9 a.m.–1 p.m.

Session III: July 26–29 (Monday–Thursday), 9 a.m.–1 p.m.

For registration or additional information, contact Ting Liu, director of autism summer camp, at (512) 245-8259 or by email at
