SUMMER LITERACY CAMP

We are excited to be offering an intensive literacy camp for children entering grades 1 to 3 and 4 to 6. The program will be supervised by a speech-language pathologist and an occupational therapist in a fun and interactive small-group environment. 

The program will follow research based on the science of reading and will engage your child in phonological awareness, gross motor, and print activities while using material and lessons from the University of Florida Literacy Institute (UFLI) in order to support your child’s unique literacy level.

What skills will my child learn?

 

Before your child’s camp week at Aspire Speech, one of our trained therapists will screen your child's literacy and fine motor skills. We may also request to review your child’s report card and consult their schoolteacher. The screening results will then be used to tailor our sessions to your child’s individual needs. The results will also be used to set realistic goals for your child's learning and measure progress at the end of camp.  

During camp, we will focus on the following skills: 

  • Phonological awareness

  • Reading comprehension

  • Letter identification and sound

  • Vocabulary development

  • Printing and functional school skills

  • Self-regulation and social skills 

 

Finally, you will receive a brief summary report with suggested next steps at the end of the summer camp.

What are the camp details?
