Spring is upon us and before you know it you’ll be celebrating the end of another school year. Research tells us that kids lose up to two months of learning over the summer. So it is even more vital to continue to support learning for kids with learning disabilities, speech/language, and pragmatic impairment.
Although there are many camps designed for children with various diagnoses, don’t overlook your city’s park district summer camps or activities. They offer a plethora of classes that tangentially support, receptive/expressive language and social skills. For instance, an acting class’s primary goal might be to produce a play, but it may also support social and expressive language skills.
Here are a list of possible camps based on various needs/interests:
ADHD/Autism Spectrum Disorder:
Apraxia of Speech:
Developmental Disability (spina bifida, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism):
Deaf and Hard of Hearing:
