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 will learn and practice producing sounds accurately. The sounds targeted for improvement will be determined through a speech evaluation, current speech goals from the school speech-language pathologist, or parental concerns.

Summer Speech Buddies will not be held in Summer 2022. However, individual speech therapy services are available for children with speech sound disorders. Contact the Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing Clinic for further information.
