Bright Futures Learning Services (BFLS) is a therapy clinic and learning center in Winfield, West Virginia. The clinic primarily focuses on early intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for children on the autism spectrum. BFLS is a team of committed people who believe that every child can-and has the right to- learn.
BFLS recently began offering a precision teaching program for children who struggle academically: those with learning disabilities, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, or ADD. Based on the Morningside Model of Generative instruction, which typically yields two years of academic progress in one, our Precision Learning program helps children who struggle with reading or math catch up on foundation skills necessary for ultimate success.
Bright Futures is changing lives every day, but its reach is limited, thus CARES was born. CARES exists to meet the greater needs of the community.
Camp Appalachia was started because of a deep desire to help serve the people of our community, especially our underserved and high-risk youth.
CARES is partnering with Camp Appalachia because we have similar goals: to serve the underserved and high-risk youth of our community.
Camp Appalachia is a year-long camp whose target camper is a child between the ages of 7 and 17 and is at a high risk for destructive life choices. They provide a little to no cost camp experience to kids who are directly affected by the opioid epidemic, kids in the foster care system, and kids who have one or more parents incarcerated. They currently have a summer day camp, and are in the process of bringing their ten residential cabins up to code to provide a resident camp.
Their focus? Opioid prevention, outdoor education, leadership, and resiliency building.
