The College Internship Program (CIP) has announced dates and locations for their 2021 summer programs for teens and young adults with autism and other learning differences.
Next summer, CIP will offer Summer@CIP, their traditional two-week in-person program at five highly-rated college locations in addition to SummerSessions@CIP, a virtual program that was successfully launched last year. The 2021 schedule has been designed to provide multiple options for families due to any possible restrictions surrounding COVID-19. All programs will be offered between June 27th through August 6th, 2021. Program dates and locations can be found on CIP's website.
CIP is one of the world’s most comprehensive transition programs for teens and young adults with autism and other learning differences, offering support with college, independent living, and employment.
"The transition from adolescence to young adulthood for people with learning differences is a critical time in one's life," commented CIP President Dan McManmon. ”Our tight-knit groups of participants will learn strategies for making a well-prepared transition to life after high school including independent living skills, practice socialization and recreation, and college readiness, all in a very safe and structured environment.”
The traditional two-week summer program will be offered on-site at five college campuses where students will live in college dorms and experience a taste of college life. Students will learn new skills that are embedded in CIP’s cutting edge programming that has been crafted to meet the unique needs and interests of students who learn differently. Participants will also spend time with peers exploring activities in the surrounding community with an emphasis on making new friends and having fun.
The virtual program will be offered Monday-Friday July 19-30. Participants will benefit from CIP’s expert staffing, small group cohorts, and ample opportunities for fun and socializing such as virtual escape rooms and scavenger hunts. Participants enroll in SummerSessions@CIP from across the US and internationally. Parent workshops will also be offered.
Kristen, a parent of a recent participant stated “Cameron had a wonderful time, and the summer program really exceeded our expectations, honestly. It’s usually hard to engage students online for so many hours per day, but Cameron came off every evening feeling energized and happy. Thank you.”
CIP has specialized in the educational needs of teens and young adults with autism and learning differences for over 35 years, offering year-round residential and summer transition program options with unparalleled supports since 1984. CIP’s summer programs are designed to offer a pathway for families to help them determine the best next steps for their young adults with learning differences.

Child Protection Update 7: Parent support over school break
- During the pandemic, sexting behaviour has increased as a way for isolated students to connect with each other or get validation or attention.
- Self-harm and suicide are outcomes of non-consensual sharing of sexual images and of trauma. These numbers are rising globally.
- Parents should know what to do if a child discloses that they have shared a sexual image. Information sheet here.
See trends, research, and news in CP News.
A number of new tools have been launched to support parent conversations with children around safety and harm.
Research indicates schools and parents await too long before conveying critical information to children about adult content online or healthy touch. Most children have already viewed adult sexual content online by the age of 11.
Good tips for schools to share include:
- 'talking up' rather than down to the child (framing it as a way for the adult to learn about a child's experiences)
- planning for several smaller conversations rather than conveying information at one time.
- use materials depicting children a little older than your child rather than younger or the same age.
During this holiday time, you might also provide this more lighthearted conversation between children and parents about social media, consent and 'Sharenting'
Specifically for younger children
- Build and Talk Lego - A program to support conversations while building about online safety, and abuse prevention. Learn more about the program here.
- Healthy touch conversation guide here.
Specifically for 11 and up

We will aim for diversity in a school location, and participant role and nationality, and may not be able to accept all those interested. If you'd like to be considered, please share your contact details, region and role to EdPortal@ICMEC.org.
This is the final child protection update of 2020. You can view previous updates here. Thank you for prioritizing the care of children during this challenging year. Wishing you peace and health in the new year.

Gap Year Programmes
I would like to thank our teachers for their work, because I really enjoyed their lessons! They gave their heart and soul to their work. Teachers like this, caring ones, are very rare. We were very lucky to have them.
- Lev, Gap Year student, Ukraine
We arrange study abroad programmes for individuals and for school or college groups. These are taken in the form of a semester or year in Oxford and are a wonderful opportunity for students to discover the joys of Oxford, whilst continuing their education and broadening their horizons.
Some students take these programmes to enhance their existing studies, and possibly gain accreditation from their own high school or college. Others see the Oxford programme as an exciting way to widen their cultural and educational experience as part of a gap year. Some students love the city so much that they take the programme in order to enter a British university and stay in Oxford!
These programmes are very much tailor-made - they are unlike any other academic programme we offer. Some students choose to fill their schedule with academic study, aiming to work towards a qualification of some kind, whilst others choose to explore lots of different subjects which they have never studied - for example, learning a new language, or looking at an area of History which is new to them. Some students prefer to focus on the cultural, taking more vocational options in Art, Design, Architecture or even things like needlework or jewellery-making! The most important thing about these courses is their flexibility. We have welcomed students who have arrived planning to study Architecture at university, and have left to pursue undergraduate study in International Relations - we allow our study abroad students to shape their own programme in order for them to get a truly personalised, diverse experience.
We have been able to organise work experience placements for study abroad students in establishments as diverse as vintage clothing shops and patisseries. Students taking a gap-year programme should expect a culturally enriching and educational experience which they will remember forever.
If you are considering a study abroad year or semester, please write to us first with full information about your present studies and future plans, and an idea of what you hope to achieve during your time in Oxford. One of our staff members will be happy to offer you advice and to help you build the programme you are looking for. Where relevant, we will then contact your current school or college counsellors in order to best understand your current academic position and to arrange accreditation where necessary.
All students taking a gap year or study abroad semester receive full certification from OISC, with letters of recommendation and references to their school or college to ensure they receive credit where possible.

“For the first time I actually understand what I am aiming for in my job. All the practical tasks were applied in reality and really helped. The depth of understanding and a sense of what my job is supposed to be empowered me and transformed the way I carry out my job. It is the first training I have done which actually trains you for the job you do. Definitely do it. It's the best course I have ever taken and I have completed a degree, Masters, a Grad Dip, an AMBDA, a PGCE, and now this!!” - Sarah Brown completed iSENCO 2020, based in France.
“The course staff are experienced, knowledgeable and helpful. The materials are relevant and reusable long after the course is over. I feel I have a wealth of documents etc that I will refer back to for the rest of my career. I took the course to deepen my own knowledge and to have a more structured approach to headship and you have met those needs head on and in an enjoyable but informative manner.” - Liam Bellamy completed NPQH 2020, based in Bahrain.
“All of the courses I have enrolled on have exceeded my expectations. The detail and structure that goes into the planning of the courses allows for delegates to feel guided throughout the course, even when there is no face to face element. The course tutors are extremely knowledgeable, approachable and helpful; they respond quickly to any messages and are always willing to help.” - Catrin Brauner completed CPT3A and NASENCO 2019, based in Dubai.
