The Summer Speech-Language Specialty Clinics are designed for children and adolescents with communication disorders who benefit from an intensive five-week intervention program.
Individuals enrolled in the Summer Specialty Clinics, located in CMU’s Health Professions Building, show favorable outcomes in learning new skills and maintaining skills throughout the summer.
The families of the children who come here are enormously grateful for the opportunity – but they need your help to let their children attend. Even sponsoring a half-day camper for one day can make a difference!
Participation in the camp is open to children 3-14 with a wide variety of communication challenges, including:
- Developmental language disorders
- Articulation disorders and phonological impairments
- Voice disorders
- Speech disorders related to cleft lip and palate
- Motor speech disorders
- Autistic spectrum disorders
- Hearing impairments
- Stuttering/fluency impairments
Clinical sessions are half a day long, with full day sessions available to those ages 7-14. Our current tuition structure for the five week program is $700 for half-day programs and $1,400 for the full day program.
“My child improved greatly. His confidence improved leaps and bounds and his speech can be understood outside of our family members.”
“It has been two great years here. My little boy has changed so much because of this program. He used to be shy and when he did talk you could not understand him. He is not shy anymore and he has a lot more confidence. Thank you for all you did for him.”
