Speech and Hearing Summer Programs

Available for both children and adults, these sessions take place during the summer to help individuals with speech, literacy, and language skills at a variety of levels.

Services will be provided by graduate student clinicians under the guidance and supervision of UGA faculty members with all relevant experience, state licensure, and national certification in speech-language pathology, elementary education, and special education. To ensure quality of service, program enrollment will be limited.

Parents, partners, caregivers, or other loved ones are encouraged to observe or participate during part or all of the program. A parent or other adult is required to stay with any participant who cannot use the toilet independently.
