Event Details

Participants
Our program is designed for students currently enrolled in grades 5-8 with a range of communication abilities, including students who use communication devices.  This program is aimed at students and families impacted by language, communication, and/or sensory difficulties.

Program Goals
The class goal is to use touch technology with multiple iPads to facilitate communication and teamwork between students. We will strive to help each child improve their self-confidence and become a more effective communicator. 

The therapy process is designed to improve each child's communication abilities toward age-appropriate levels and provide education and support for social skills and sensory needs to support students and parents.


Curriculum
The teaching activities will include:

  • Small Group instruction and hands-on application through iPad activities that will motivate and engage students.
  • Rotation though multiple iPad centers with various games and activities to facilitate communication and social interaction.
  • Instruction on games with direct adult support at each station and SLP support throughout the class.
  • The opportunity for each student to post his or her experience on the SpeechGarden facebook page to experience social media.

 
Staff, Ratios & Class Size
Each class is taught by a certified SLP - and only the best will do!  We will have additional staff to encourage lots of talking and to keep our ratios of students at 8:1 or less.  The maximum number of students is 20 per class. An extra class may be opened if registration exceeds the maximum for a single class.
