Help your child or young adult improve his/her ability to communicate, pay attention, comprehend, read, write, remember and socialize with others at Pediatric Speech and Language Specialists. Our regular services are available year round! Should you want summer help or want to add to your therapy plan, these summer programs may be just what your child needs!
Our innovative, research-based summer programs include but are not limited to:
with social learning and communication challenges. Students learn how
to work as part of a group, think flexibly and “go with the flow”,
understand how others perceive them, problem solve, develop effective
communication skills, regulate emotions, understand the “hidden rules”
and learn how to initiate and sustain conversation. Groups are formed
based on age, skill level, and compatibility.
Intensive Apraxia Program
Our 6-8 week summer program for children with Childhood Apraxia of
Speech is a very popular summer program for those children who struggle with this motor speech disorder. If your child has this diagnosis
and has great difficulty planning and producing the precise, highly
refined and specific series of movements of the tongue, lips, jaw and
palate that are necessary for intelligible speech, this program may be just
the boost your child needs.
