We Continue to Learn
This month the Wee Speech Team watched a webinar on the use of Augmentative Communication to improve communication skills in learners with significant impairment. Up next in our summer learning series are courses on apraxia, oral motor therapy, auditory processing disorder and early literacy development.

We Are Out and About
Wee Speech will have a table at the upcoming Refuah 311 Health and Safety Fair on Sunday July 8th at the JCC on Touhy Ave in Chicago. We will also be at the National Down Syndrome Association Conference on August 11th at St. Ignatious College Prep in Chicago. Stop by either one of these fabulous events for goodies, information and fun!!

Please Welcome!
