Summer is a great time to Discover the Magic. The USLHC summer programs provide opportunities for children to maintain and grow their communication skills during the summer break.

Cougar Communication Groups: Discover the Magic

These intensive summer therapy groups are for children ages 18 months (about one and a half years) and older. They are designed to improve speech and language skills and maintain progress made during the school year. Our summer program features adjusted tuition for families with lower incomes, small groups with a ratio of 1 clinician to 2 children, and fun activities. Groups focus on a specific disorder area, such as language, articulation/ phonology, social skills, fluency, and voice skills. These groups are especially appropriate for children who do not receive public school services during the summer.
