The Speech and Hearing Clinic at WTAMU is excited to offer annual summer therapy programming for children ages 3-10 with speech sound disorders, language disorders, fluency disorders (all ages), and other disorders related to communication.

The intensive 2-week programs are 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, enrolled children make impressive gains in speech, language, and pre-academic skills.

Children who stutter have been known to benefit from intensive therapy programs too.­ Our fluency program 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 students enrolled in the communication disorders program and experienced and certified speech-language pathologists, who are faculty members in the WTAMU communication disorders program.
