Description

Research demonstrates that competency in the areas of language, literacy, phonological awareness, and auditory processing is vital to academic success in children, as well as in navigating adult life. The study’s purpose is to measure the efficacy of an intensive, three-week therapy summer camp program in improving children’s skills in these four areas. Additional goals include identifying strengths and weaknesses of the program in order to improve intervention strategies for future camps. Evidence-based therapy programs were utilized during the summer camp, as well as science experiments, and snack and crafts time.
