SUMMER PROGRAM AND SERVICES
Our summer generally runs for 6 weeks beginning after July 4th weekend. It is very typical for our summer program to fill up by mid spring, so it is important to call 508-255-0076 and reserve a spot early. We must have your child's paperwork in place and releases signed so that we can make contact with your child's Speech Pathologist and/or Tutor prior to the end of the school year.
INDIVIDUAL SPEECH LANGUAGE THERAPY
Short term individual therapy is available for children requiring continued skills training in language development, speech and articulation, phonological awareness, social language, voice, lipreading and fluency or stuttering. For families summering on Cape Cod, our offices will coordinate with your child’s speech pathologist in his or her home state prior to your arrival.
Short term individual tutoring is available for school aged children who may be experiencing difficulty with other aspects of language, including acquiring the skills needed to learn to read, spell or write. Following an assessment, specifically tailored programs will be designed for your child and may include portions of the
or a variety of tutor designed materials in reading, writing or spelling materials based upon the research of Louisa Moats, Ed.D, Mel Levine, MD and All Kinds of Minds Institute, Sally Shaywitz, M.D. or the principles of Dr. Marie Clay’s Reading Recovery.
These groups will strive to teach the components of expository (essay) writing for students in grades 4 8. Given the demands on written expression through standardized testing and changes in educational law, the need for direct and explicit instruction in the process of essay writing is needed more than ever. In a small group, students will receive direct instruction in the following areas:
SOCIAL PRAGMATIC SKILLS GROUPS
Social skills groups are available for children from grades K-8, and will help develop and support functional conversational skills that assist children in making and keeping friendships, solving problems and interacting in everyday situations. Skills to be taught and practiced include listening, turntaking, initiating and maintaining conversations and how to make small talk.
This group will be available for children in grades K-2, and will help develop and support sound awareness skills that are critical to the development of reading. Skill development in sound discrimination, rhyming, blending and manipulation will be taught and practiced within fun, motivating activities.
