Space Camp and Aviation Challenge offers a variety of programs for special needs students.
We offer SPACE CAMP and AVIATION CHALLENGE programs specifically designed for special needs students, including camps for blind, and/or visually-impaired, deaf and/or hard-of-hearing, and a week at the end of summer designated for special needs youth.
Over the years, we have worked closely with several organizations, including the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind, the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind, and most recently, the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, to develop a meaningful, inspirational experience for these students.
Program highlights may include a presentation by blind and/or deaf NASA professionals on career choices and working in the space industry. Enlarged print, sign language interpreters, attention to mobility hazards and other special considerations are extended to put trainees at ease.
Blind students also benefit from the latest technology in the field, including tactile Braille displays and synthetic speech for computers.
We also offer Space Camp for Special Needs Youth, August 25 - 30, 2013. This week is separate from our Space Camp Deaf Week and Space Camp for Interested Visually Impaired Students. This program is for kids with severe disabilities, who may need an aide for mobility, and/or who otherwise may not have the opportunity to participate in Space Camp.
