Each day of the experience, participants are paired with Spalding University students who are studying in one of the professional programs of occupational therapy, nursing, education or applied behavioral analysis.

All activities are imaginatively designed to meet participants’ specific needs for creative-play experiences that enhance engagement and performance.

Special snack times are embedded within each day’s programming. KITE is designed and coordinated by experienced assistive technology professionals, occupational therapists, a speech language pathologist and various Spalding University professional program faculty.
