Our AAC Intensive is designed for preschool children who receive AAC support for their communication skills (IEP, individual speech therapy, etc). This week-long intensive program will target AAC skills, early literacy, and collaborative play within a group context as well as focusing on caregiver education.
Meet Your SLP Camp Counselor
Meet Fiona, Speech Language Pathologist at Talk Time Boston. Fiona is passionate about Augmentative and Alternative Communication and supporting emergent communicators to help build their autonomy, including their access to literacy. She has experience working with a range of child profiles -- from low to high support needs -- ranging from early childhood to early adulthood using multi-modal communication including no, low, and high tech systems. Additionally, she is skilled at supporting parents through family education as stakeholders in their child's communication. Fiona is always exploring and learning how to better support complex communicators, and she can't wait to work with your child this summer!

AAC Intensive Program
We have four seats available for our July 2024 AAC Intensive. This program is designed for preschool age children with caregivers looking for AAC and early literacy support.
Children with high support needs are welcome and encouraged to apply!
Each day will start off at 9am with a group circle time followed by a snack and movement activities before delving into specific activities that will tie back to our book for the week.
Language and literacy skills will be targeted all day as we explore art, writing, and movement.
During the week, we will be focusing on learning and practicing communication partner strategies to support children who are using AAC. Parents will have the opportunity to practice modeling in and how to support their children build their language using AAC as well as support their early literacy skills.
AAC users are sometimes a small group in their communities, and we are excited to provide an avenue for families to connect with other families who have similar experiences and are navigating similar challenges.
