Summer Social Communication Programs

Summer Social Communication Programs NJ children New Jersey language skills kidsSpeech & Hearing Associates is repeating its highly successful intensive summer social language skills program. This program will run during the summer months and will give children of all ages a foundation in Speech and 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.

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.

Groups will be held from:

1) July 19th – July 30th 

2) August 9th – August 20th 

Monday – Friday (5 days a week) in Westfield.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday sessions will be held for one hour between 9 AM – 12 PM or 1:30 PM -3:30 PM each day in the Westfield office. Monday and Friday sessions will be a 1-hour community-based outing.

Our son has taken speech therapy with Mrs. Melissa since he was just over 3 yrs old and for the last year he’s been in her social skills class. Today he “Graduated” and while we will miss Mrs. Melissa (and the staff), we are so proud of how far he’s come. Mrs.Melissa has been nothing short of phenomenal. She worked along with our son’s school speech teacher to make sure he was getting the best most effective lessons to help him along. The last year has taught him how to socialize and express himself to better communicate and interact with others and has really helped him “open up” and be a better boy. The staff always made us feel welcomed and will never hesitate to recommend Speech and Hearing to any of our family or friends! Thank You!!
