Children will get the most out of Speech Star Camps for Kids if they can already:
- Attend to a task for 2-3 minutes with little assistance
- Respond to their name

- Imitate sound with some consistency
- Follow simple instructions (e.g. come here, put that in the garbage, clap your hands)
All camps are coordinated by Brooke Rea, the owner of Childhood Apraxia & Speech Therapy Centre. She is especially excited to be partnering with Western University & Brittany Valeriote of Let’s Talk Guelph to make Speech Star Camps for Kids a reality!
