Groups & Camps

Simcoe Speech Clinic offers a number of fun-packed summer camps and groups for children between the ages 2.5-9. All of our sessions take place at our beautiful homelike setting in downtown Alliston.

Simcoe Speech is hosting Social Skills groups for children ages 5-9.

An evening planned for older children working on using positive social skills with their peers. We learn how to connect with friends, taking conversational turns, asking questions/commenting on peer interests, being a good listener and staying on topic and more! We can add a specific treatment goal if needed.

This program may be claimed using your Private Health Insurance under Speech Pathology or may be claimed through the Children’s Activity Tax Credit or may be used with SSAH funding.

All things Literacy! Reading based games, make your own books and activities to bring home to practice reading and literacy building. This group is geared for those students having difficulty with letter recognition, sound/letter awareness and early reading ability. Come ready to begin a life long joy of reading and meet some new friends along the way!

This group was developed to support a special group of girls. Typically for those girls who have 0-2 speech errors. This group builds on their confidence, self esteem, and strong- loud, determined voices. This group is our true sense of our name “Chatterboxes!” We explore girls around the world, journal writing about our dreams, desires and accomplishments. The group builds and strengthens each other while working on our speech sounds at conversational levels. 

This group learns how to stand up, empower and feel confident in themselves. Conversation is positive and uplifting while making new friends and solving every day issues.

This group was developed for 5-9 year olds but as the group evolves we continue to add new supports. If you have a younger girl who could use a confidence boost, we are always happy to run additional groups to meet your child’s needs.

(6-9 year olds)

This program is for children with 1-2 speech goals – working on reading and spelling using the focus on each individual speech goal. Typically this group is for /s/,/l/ or /r/ concerns. This group explores activities, interactive games and reading to support the individual speech errors of each child.

Chatterbox Speech Camp is in its 15th amazing, fun filled-year. We offer structured play activities to help support speech, language, literacy and social communication needs. We work to support individual communication needs in a camp like setting. Each day is scheduled – we have science, arts and crafts, music, literacy, language games, outside play, outings and MORE!!

Who is appropriate for the Camp?

Any child who currently has concerns in speech, language or social communication is appropriate for this camp. Children who are preparing for school entry are also appropriate for the camp as we work on an individual learning level basis. If you are looking to support needs or add valuable language skills for school readiness, in a fun filled environment – our camp is right for your CAMPER! NEW to 2018 – camp week for 3-5 year olds and a special program for 6-9 year olds.

What happens at Camp?

Everything that happens at camp GET’S SHARED!! Monday is a “getting to know you” day. Each child is screened for speech and language goals. If you already have concerns – please let staff know as we will tailor individual goals to meet the needs of your child and family goals. If your child is seeing a Speech Language Pathologist – we can complement their goals as well.

You will receive updates and a program package to continue, after camp is finished. Each day has a specific theme. We use themes to increase overall vocabulary and language skills. We also use themes to help tell our camps what is coming up next to support transitions of activities. Once registered, your camper will be given a list of themes for the camp and also a list of the items that you can bring to support their learning environment. Our last day is a celebration of their accomplishments, and lunch is provided.

How many CAMPERS Attend?

We continue to keep our camper ratio low to provide the maximum benefit to each child who comes. We currently offer 10-15 spaces to our lucky campers! Our ratios are 3:1 (with extra support to be provided if your camper needs it!) The camp is run by Amy Van Leeuwen, Speech Language Pathologist and our Communicative Disorders Assistants, ABA certified support, and volunteers.

What is the cost?

5 full days are $550.00. A deposit of $250.00 is necessary to hold your campers space 1 month before camp begins – Full payment must be deposited on First day of camp. Half days are available upon request but full time campers will be given priority spaces. Please contact us for more details.
