Summer is a great time to improve existing skills and develop new skills. Speech Therapy Works has developed programs to target learning  and  language to boost your child’s skills before the next school year.

SUMMER Reading Program

The Summer Reading Program is for early readers under the age of seven. Whether your child is learning to read or reading to learn, we could help! Children have the option to register for our 4 week program or the 8 week program. We offer individual sessions at our clinic or at your home. The summer reading program starts with an assessment by a speech-language pathologist to identify your child’s unique needs. The program could help develop or establish

  • Sound-letter correspondence
  • Sight word recognition
  • Decoding skills
  • Phonological awareness
  • Reading fluency and reading comprehension

Home programs will be provided at the end of each session to practice skills in between sessions.

SUMMER Social Language Group

The Summer Social Language Group will consist of a small group of 2-3 children. The summer social language group will start with an evaluation to identify your child’s social language needs. Your child will be assigned to a group based on her age and social language needs.  The social  language group will help develop a child’s ability to

  • Initiate communication with peers
  • Use language for a variety of purposes e.g. sharing, providing information, requesting, commenting etc.
  • Ability to ask questions and answer questions appropriately.
  • Take turns and play appropriately
  • Following conversation rules e.g. providing background information, context appropriate comments etc.

SUMMER Writing Program

The Summer writing Program is a 8 week program to help your child improve writing skills. After the initial assessment by a registered speech-language pathologist, therapy will be provided at your home or clinic for children 7 years and older. The summer writing program will help your child improve

  • Spelling
  • Ability to formulate complex and compound sentences
  • Generating topic related ideas
  • Organize information and details
  • Use of professional language

Writing is how children express themselves at school especially during exams and assignments. A child’s knowledge is tested by her ability to express through writing. The summer writing program will help boost your child’s writing skills and confidence when engaging in school related tasks.
