Wediko Summer Program Admissions
The Admissions Process
The Wediko Summer Program is focused on determining “goodness of fit” between Wediko and the student and family. To do this, we try to learn as much about the student and family as possible, as well as help the student and family to learn about us. During the admissions process, the Wediko Admissions Team:
- Reviews the completed application and additional clinical documentation such as psychological assessments, clinical discharge summaries, and IEPs;
- Consults with the family and other involved professionals (i.e. educational consultants, clinical and school professionals, and medical providers) in order to gain a comprehensive perspective on the student;
- Interviews each student and family. Ideally, we interview students and families in person on our New Hampshire campus so the student and family can tour and get the “feel” of Wediko. However, for students and families who are unable to come to campus, we interview many families in our Boston and New York offices or over the phone.
Admissions decisions are made as a team, based on “goodness of fit” of the student and family with our community, the cabin group, and available space.

The Summer Program runs a single session, from July 5th – August 18th.
Full Session: July 5-August 18
Tuition is due in full by arrival day: July 5. Families pay for the Wediko Summer Program through a variety of methods, including private funding and public sources. Public sources include school districts or state mental health departments. To determine whether your son or daughter may be eligible for funding, contact your Special Education Director or your caseworker.
Unfortunately, Wediko is unable to offer scholarships or tuition assistance at this time.
The Wediko Summer Program application will go live in February. If you have any questions in the meantime, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-292-9200.
Wediko encourages submitting your Summer Program application online using our secure parent portal. You will be prompted to create an account, which will allow you to fill out the “Parent Form” application, save for later editing, and submit when complete.
Once the “Parent Form” of the student’s application is complete, you will be prompted to download two supplementary documents: forms to give to a therapist and teacher to complete as well as Authorization for Release of Information forms so the admissions team can obtain information, if needed, from professionals who have or are currently providing services to the applicant. These may be submitted by mail, fax, or email.
Applying by Mail, Fax, or Email
If you prefer, you may download copies of all application materials below. The Wediko Summer Program application consists of four forms: including one each for parents, a therapist, and a teacher to complete. These forms may be submitted separately by mail, fax, or email. While we do not need all application forms at the same time, we must receive all required forms before scheduling an interview.
