There will be a one hour group session for parents prior to the first day of camp to learn about the approach we will be using. A brief pre and post-camp screening will also be administered.

Why intensive programs?
Research has shown that children who participate in intensive programs make more progress in a shorter amount of time. Meeting several days each week allows your child to move ahead with less review at each session than is necessary in a weekly session. It is important for your child to attend the full session to receive maximum benefit.
How can I tell if my child will benefit?
Call the Center for Speech & Language at 407-299-1533 to discuss your child's needs and to arrange a screening of your child's reading and language skills OR send us information from your child's school or another source documenting your child's reading level.back to the top
