Help a child with a communication disorder attend CMU Summer Speech-Language Specialty Clinics designed to benefit him or her for life!
Dr. Sue Woods’ Camp Commitment
As Dr. Sue Woods retires from CMU this year, help us honor her time by donating to the SSC Sponsor-A-Camper Scholarship. Dr. Woods has been a faculty member since 1998, but her love of the Summer Speech-Language Specialty Clinics started in 1973 as a camp clinician and live-in counselor.
“For children with speech-language-hearing disorders, SSC provides the best opportunity to learn,” Dr. Woods said, who still serves as a camp clinical supervisor. Please help a child in need of tuition assistance to attend this intensive program. Dr. Woods thanks you in advance!
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.
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!
