Overview of Speech and Language Summer Camps
This summer, we are offering speech and language camps in our clinic. Ideal candidates for these programs are children with speech and language delays who are able to participate in a small group setting, like to interact with others, and enjoy games and storytelling activities.
There will be a maximum of 4 children per camp with a ratio of 2:1. Although children will participate in group activities, individual goals will be established for each camper. As well, a home program will be developed for continued practice and maintenance of goal
Early speech and language deficits that remain untreated are predictive of school failure. Children entering the school system with speech and language delays are at risk of experiencing difficulties learning to read, as well as having poor writing skills. These difficulties also have significant implications for social interactions and self-esteem.
Fees paid for these therapeutic camps are eligible for reimbursement through many health care insurance plans. As well, they qualify as tax deductible health care expenses.
