FNDC’s Guidelines for
DYT Summer Programs
Introduction: Guidelines are very difficult to write as they may sound daunting, but they are guidelines for our DYT program that have been developed over 20 years working with DHH children and their families based on the situations that we have encountered throughout those years. In addition, many of our guidelines are consistent with those of various municipal children’s programs in BC, as well as other BC camps that support children with special needs. We have also taken into consideration the guidelines used by the BC Ministry of Education regarding students with special needs (class size/composition in BC classrooms). We recognize that each DHH child and family is unique and DYT uses these guidelines to ensure the safety, wellbeing and inclusion of each child in our DYT program.
