LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) Department of Speech-Language and Hearing Sciences will host speech and language summer camps for children June 8-July 2 at TTUHSC, 3601 Fourth St., and at All Saints Episcopal School, 3222 103rd St.
The programs are designed for children ages 4 through 11 with various types of speech, language, and learning disabilities. Children will participate in individual and group speech-language therapy activities while enjoying field trips, socialization, and hands-on crafts, projects, and experiments. Camps will be coordinated and supervised by faculty speech-language pathologists in the TTUHSC Department of Speech-Language and Hearing Sciences. Speech and language therapy will be provided by current first and second year graduate students in the department.
"These camps are a way for kids who have difficulty speaking, learning or interacting to have fun and make friends this summer while developing the language skills they need to succeed academically and socially," said Judith P. Keller, M.S., CCC-SLP, a board-recognized fluency specialist in the Department of Speech-Language and Hearing Sciences.
