WTAMU Speech and Hearing Clinic
Summer Camp - Buff Up Your Speech

The Speech and Hearing Clinic at WTAMU is excited to offer the 1st annual summer therapy camps for children ages 4-10 with speech sound disorders, language disorders, fluency disorders and other disorders related to communication.

The intensive 3-week camp is designed to boost children's speech and language skills during the summer months when most educational programs are closed.  Instead of losing valuable instructional time in the summer, children enrolled in camp make impressive gains in speech, language, and pre-academic skills.

Children who stutter have been known to benefit from intensive therapy programs.  Our fluency camp is designed to decrease the frequency of stuttering, provide support from group therapy sessions, meet other children who stutter, improve confidence, develop better ways to cope with stuttering, and learn how to deal with bullying-while having FUN in the process.

The staff includes graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in the communication disorders program and experienced and certified Speech-Language Pathologists who are faculty members in the WTAMU communication disorders program.
