Join our Speech-Language Pathologist for a creative, hands-on theater experience. Table readings, script writing, stage cuing, and set design will be incorporated into this 8-week group. Thespians will work on fluent oral reading, articulation, story analysis, social cues, and writing. At the end of the 8 weeks, our all camp-inspired, written, and produced play will be shared with families.

Professional & Community Training

9am-12:15pm

Professional & Community Training

There is a subset of clients who present, either on intake or further into treatment, as living chaotic lives, including unstable relationships. Their diagnosis might be Borderline (or other) Personality Disorder, or Bi-Polar disorder. How do you assess and set treatment goals with these clients? What about when the client is parenting children? What is the role of the therapist? What is the role of an agency?
