Summer S.P.E.A.K. (Speech Praxis Experience at Kaufman)
Luke was fortunate enough to be accepted into the Summer S.P.E.A.K. program where he will work with Nancy Kaufman, intensively for a period of 3 weeks. The program runs Monday through Friday and has two sessions offered.
The daily schedule for the 3-week program includes:
•One half-hour morning speech session with Nancy Kaufman
•One half-hour morning speech session with another highly trained member of the SPEAK team.
•One hour-long afternoon group session with other children in the SPEAK program.
Many families choose to receive occupational therapy services as well during their time at the KCC (this would be an additional cost). Oftentimes, kids with apraxia of speech will benefit from oral-motor, fine-motor, and even sensory integration techniques.
