Access to Better Communication offers a variety of unique summer therapy programs to meet the needs of many children.
The summer is a great time to address communication challenges while not under the pressures of an academic program.
If you’re interested in taking advantage of these limited availability classes, we offer summer groups in the following areas:
Reading and Writing Groups
Students will prepare for next school year by enhancing reading, comprehension, and written expression. Through children’s literature and group discussions, students will work to enrich oral reading fluency and understanding of stories. They will also work to become more interesting and creative writers by learning to organize ideas, to express themselves through effective words and sentence structure, and to edit their creations.
Social Skills Groups
Your child will participate in a unique program that teaches social thinking and related social skills in small groups to increase their social confidence and competence. The students will learn how their own social minds work and why they react and respond to people and way they do, how to navigate their behaviors for more rewarding social outcomes, how to consider how others perceive them, and how to the people and situations around them. The goal is improved social relationships in a variety of situations including home, school, and social outings.
Study Skills and Test Taking Group
Help your child develop important study and test testing skills to succeed in school. The group is focused on techniques designed to help your child start the next school year with improved skillson organization, time management, how to study, test taking vocabulary, note taking, and memory techniques designed to help your child start the next school year on a wonderful note.
Phonological Awareness Group
Students will lay a foundation for reading and spelling skills by practicing sound and letter awareness and manipulating sounds in syllables and words. These important pre-literacy skills needed to be a successful reader will be presented through fun, motivating activities.
Early Social Language Group
Enrich your child’s communication and interaction skills in our small group setting. The group is designed to enhance receptive and expressive language skills, learn early social skills, and build friendships through fun activities indoors and out!
Give your child the opportunity to practice fluency strategies learned in individual therapy, to interact with peers, and to be exposed to varied speaking situations in a comfortable and supportive environment.
Summer Group scheduling is available beginning April 1st. We will be glad to help you determine the appropriate group setting for your child’s needs.
