Summer is the perfect time to help children maintain their speech and language skills in a relaxed setting without the pressures that accompany the school year.
Registration is open for summer speech-language therapy opportunities for children ages 3-12 from Northwestern University's Speech, Language, and Learning Clinic. Customized speech and language therapy targeting language abilities and social communication skills is provided in a variety of formats designed to fit families' summer schedules.
“Our clinic always provides evidence-based speech and language therapy individualized to a child’s needs,” says clinical faculty member Judy Roman, MA CCC-SLP, who supervises pediatric services at the clinic. Perfect for vacationing families, the intensive summer therapy program is available 2-3 times a week for 4 weeks and focuses on individualized speech and language therapy. Four-week small group mini-camps meet twice weekly with 1:1 clinician support to target language development and social communication skills. Speech and language abilities can be strengthened during the summer in weekly sessions that help prepare for the upcoming school year.
Founded in Evanston in 1928, Northwestern University's Speech, Language, and Learning Clinic assists infants through older adults with speech-language and cognitive needs. For information and to register your child, call 847-491-5012 or visit SLLClinic.Northwestern.edu.
