Speech & Hearing Associates summer intensive social communication skills program runs during the summer months and will give children of all ages a foundation in Speech & Hearing Associates’ weekly Social/Pragmatic Language Skills Curriculum.
The 10-day summer program consists of small groups of no more than five children led by a certified, licensed speech-language pathologist. The focus of each session will vary based on group needs, but will address on an individual basis the specific areas of social/pragmatic weakness of each child. The participants will receive a social story every session to reinforce the specific topic that was targeted. Stories are great for carryover and generalization into everyday settings.
SHA has been an instrumental part of my son’s growth. I couldn’t be more appreciative! Thank you Darya, Sarah, and Meaghan.Cooper F.
In addition to learning social/pragmatic language skills in a structured intervention, participants will then have the opportunity to use their skills as they participate in community-based activities. These activities will include group outings such as parks, ice cream parlors, and child-friendly play environments during which time they will be encouraged to utilize social/pragmatic skills with their peers. Parents are present for all community-based activities and are encouraged to participate and use clinician guided strategies and techniques to encourage appropriate social interactions.
This program is loved by parents and children and truly provides a great foundation in what social/pragmatic language skills therapy is all about.
