Parents seeking a therapeutic summer camp option where pirate play time is paired with group and one-on-one speech therapy can register now for CSUF’s Titan Tykes Speech Station.
Graduate student clinicians run the annual communicative disorders program at the University’s Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic for 24 children ages 3 to 6. The 2.5-hour sessions are offered Monday through Thursday for two, eight-day sessions in June. Each eight-day session is $200 and the focus is on the children’s needs in speech, language, augmentative and alternative communication, literacy and behavior regulation.
The graduate students studying communicative disorders gain work experience while presenting themed play activities that build children’s social skills and expand the length and complexity of speech and language skills for preschool children.
Parents can register for the June 5-15 or June 19-29 session. Both sessions offer class options of 9 to 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 to 3 p.m. The children’s most recent Speech Therapy Assessment Records must be submitted to the clinic by May 15.
For registration or more information about Titan Tykes, call CSUF’s Speech and Hearing Clinic at 657-278-3997; or contact station director Kristofer Brock, assistant professor of human communications; or station coordinator Sherri Wolff, the center’s clinical services coordinator.
