LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Do you ever wonder if your child is communicating the way he or she should for that age?  The Texas Tech Health Sciences Center is again offering summer camps for kids ages 3 to 12 to help with speech and language skills. It's co-sponsored by the YWCA, but the camp counselors are all speech therapist graduate students.

"Since we do it in a camp type atmosphere, the kids don't even know they're getting therapy really, they're just there having a good time and playing," said Carolyn Perry, with the Speech and Language Clinic at TTUHSC.  "And the parents will say that they've made more progress over the two week camp, than they did over a whole extended period because we can get in there and do some very intensive work."

There are four different camps designed for different ages and abilities. They all begin in June and continue for two or three weeks.  It's $225 and the fee gets bigger if you register late.  Please call (806)743-5678 for more information
