The Say N’ Play Summer Speech Camp, run by the Los Angeles Speech and Language Therapy Center, is an intense speech and language based program taught by licensed speech-language pathologists (SLPs).
Their innovative camp is thematically based and includes weekly field trips to exciting locations such as the Aquarium of the Pacific, Los Angeles Zoo and AdventurePlex. Additionally, select children receive individual or group pull-out speech therapy two times per week from our culturally diverse staff of SLPs.
Since it’s inception in the late ’90s, this fun-filled camp has gained in popularity, drawing staff and families from around the country. The staff to child ratio is 1:4 or 1:2, depending upon each child’s need, as determined by their team. Support staff are college students from across the country, many of who return each year. They also include very responsible high school volunteers – the best and brightest from local private schools – whom they affectionately call “speech buddies”, who serve as “buddies” to the children while also stimulating speech and language in an unobtrusive manner.
Also included are behavior interventionist support staff who assist with our children who present behavior challenges.
Say N’ Play Camp hosts two sessions each summer, and space is limited as sessions fill up quickly.
Call for a free 30 min screening to determine you child’s needs and their appropriateness for the camp.
