Camp Talk About It
A few years ago, we surveyed our membership to find out what they most wanted from their association. Resoundingly, what came back was a need for speech therapy. Speech therapy is critically important for most individuals with Down Syndrome, however, speech therapy has been hard to find through the school system, and can be very expensive. LDSA in collaboration with Liz MacKinnon of Rejuvenate Health Services in Lambeth, Ontario, developed ‘Camp Talk About It”, which offers intensive speech therapy in a fun and enjoyable format at reduced cost to families. The program is run in sessions of 3 hours, once a week for 8 weeks. Although the camp is offered for a specific age group, our goal is to expand the program to different age groups and offer sessions more often.
