The CULD Program, established in 1974, is an after-school program that emphasizes academic skills, appropriate classroom behavior, development of positive attitudes toward academic work, attention skills, self-control, and perseverance. Also, CULD provides a unique environment to support the development of positive peer relationships during structured activities. Our program functions as an independent clinic, hosted at the Institute for Child Development on the Binghamton University Campus, to complement services offered in a typical school setting for children ages 6-11 years old. Emphasis is placed on individual evaluation of each child's assets and deficits, past history, current abilities, and specific learning patterns. Our program is short-term, with the average length of student enrollment spanning four terms or less.
The CULD Program cannot accept children who have significant behavior and emotional problems or cognitive impairment. Children diagnosed with a developmental delay should contact the program to determine eligibility for admission.
To help achieve a child's potential, the CULD Program utilizes the following techniques:
*For both terms, children may attend up to 3 sessions per week from Monday to Wednesday between the hours of 4 - 5:30PM.
