A fledgling is a young bird that has acquired its flight feathers. So… watch how your child’s imagination and creativity combine to ignite new discoveries of individuality and independence. This unique summer experience combines the best of our speech-language and occupational therapy programs! Directed by Burke Therapy’s experienced team of speech language pathologists and occupational therapists, this year’s Fledglings Camp focuses on building skills in communication and social pragmatic language while addressing areas of sensory processing and motor planning through play. Arts and crafts, yoga, music, making healthy snacks, outdoor play, music, literacy and more make for an exciting summer!
~Fledgling Campers must have needs in either speech-language or occupational therapy, but do not have to have needs in both to participate in our camp programs. ~
Current evaluation reports or current IEP and/or observation are required for admission in Fledglings.
