The Summer Speech Buddies program was created to provide speech sound therapy intervention over the summer for children ages 5-8 who receive speech and language therapy during the school year. By participating in these intensive groups, children can continue to progress with goals and decrease the likelihood of regression over the summer months. Children learn and practice producing sounds accurately; sounds targeted for improvement are determined through a speech evaluation, current speech goals from the school speech-language pathologist, or parental concerns.
Summer Speech Buddies may not be held each year, although the Clinic offers individual speech therapy to children with speech sound disorders year-round. Contact the Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing Clinic for further information.
