Our camp is an intense speech and language based program taught by licensed and graduate level speech pathologists. Also included are behavior interventionist who assist with our children who present behavior challenges. Our innovative camp is thematically based and includes weekly field trips to exciting locations such as the Aquarium of the Pacific, Los Angeles Zoo and AdventurePlex. Additionally, children receive individual or group speech therapy two times per week from our culturally diverse staff of licensed or CFY speech- language pathologists.
Our staff to child ratio is 1:4 or 1:2, depending upon each child's need. Our support staff are college students from schools across the country who typically are in the field of communication disorders, psychology, or a related field. We also include very responsible high school volunteers whom we affectionately call "speech buddies." The students are the best and brightest from local private schools, many of whom return annually to work with our children. Their role is to serve as "buddies" to the children while also stimulating speech and language in an unobtrusive manner. They are not professional staff nor are they included in the staff to child ratio making our actual ratio even richer.
