Camp Chit Chat is a fun and socially interactive camp for preschool age children with mild-moderate speech and language delays. It’s a great way for children to keep up with essential communication skills during the summer when regular therapy services are not offered. Each camp participant will be placed in a small group (2-3 children) with same-aged peers also working on similar skills such as articulation, language, fluency and social communication.
Children will attend one 60-90 minute session per week with one to two other children.
Each weekly camp session builds upon the previous session and focuses on helping each child in acquiring a foundation of the following communication skills: improved articulation due to speech delays such as apraxia and phonological delays, social communication with peers and staff, receptive language skills (questions, vocabulary, concepts, grammar) expressive language skills (sentence length, vocabulary, categories, grammar, questions) and fluency of speaking. Each week has a different theme and children will participate in gross motor, fine motor, social, cognitive, and early literacy and language activities within these themes. Children are welcome and encouraged to dress up for each theme!
Camp Chit Chat BBQ:
Each summer the Language Center hosts a celebration BBQ as a chance for the staff and children and families to get to know each other. This is a great time to meet other families attending camp and an opportunity to set up play dates!
