A University at Buffalo speech therapy program is screening children in grades 8-12 for an Articulation Boot Camp, an intensive four-week summer program designed to help correct articulation impairment, one of the most common speech difficulties affecting children and adults.
Articulation impairment is a speech problem that involves mispronouncing a small set of consonant sounds, including “r”, “l,” “s” and “th.”
Groups for students in grades 6-8 and 9-12 will meet from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from July 6 to July 30.
Screening appointments are free and can be scheduled by calling the Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences Clinic at 829-5575. Program tuition costs $300. Scholarships are available to eligible families unable to pay the full fee. Additional information is available online at bit.ly/1jEW4z4.
