The Social Communication Connection is thrilled to announce our summer camp and class line up for 2020! For summer offerings at a glance, please check out our summer “menu” of services flyer: SCC Menu of Group Therapy Services.
Each class will be led by 1-2 speech-language pathologists; and may also be supported by graduate students in speech-language pathology from the UTD-Callier Center for Communication Disorders. Class size will be limited to 5-6 children, varied by age and ability level.
Our treatment philosophy is use of current, evidence-based practices to provide individualized service to the children enrolled in each group, taking into consideration his/her developmental level, language abilities, and treatment priorities. We pride ourselves on service in a fun, welcoming environment that prioritizes making each camper feel comfortable, respected, and loved.
