The Say N’ Play Summer Speech Program started in 1999 and is our most popular program. An intense speech- and language-based program, it’s taught by licensed speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and behavior interventionist support staff who assist the children who present behavior challenges.
Our innovative program is organized thematically and includes weekly field trips to places like the Aquarium of the Pacific, Los Angeles Zoo and AdventurePlex. Some children receive individual or group pull-out speech therapy twice a week.
Over the years, this fun-filled program has gained in popularity, drawing staff and families from around the country. Our staff to child ratio is 1:4 or 1:2, depending upon each child’s need, as determined by our team. College students from across the country make up our support staff and many return each year. We also include select high school volunteers whom we affectionately call “speech buddies.” These volunteers are the best and brightest from local private schools. They are not professional staff nor are they included in the staff to child ratio, making our actual ratio even richer.
Each afternoon, we offer electives, which the children love! These include: Senses Alive, Drama Kings and Queens, Busy Builders, Chess, Cooking, Sign Language, Tennis Anyone?, Picture Taking and Scrapbook Making, Clay Play, The Sound of Music and Get Hooked on a Book.
Session I: June 10-July 5, and Session II: July 8- August 2
