FSU Summer Listening Camp

The FSU Speech and Hearing Clinic is hosting their third annual Summer Listen Camp for children grades K-5 who have hearing loss and use and listening and spoken language approach for communication.With today’s technology, 80-90% percent of families are choosing amplification and a listening and spoken language approach. So rather than learning sign language and attending special schools, these children are integrated in the hearing world. There is only one problem… thanks to the improved technology in hearing devices, these children are going to their home zone schools and may be the only child with hearing loss at their school.  They need to connect with other kids who are like them. Our camp gives them the opportunity to do just that!

The campers receive listening and speech-language therapy throughout the week and participate in exciting camp activities such as arts and crafts, music and dance, and outdoor activities. The campers also have the opportunity to be with other children who have hearing loss and use a listening and spoken language communication approach.

Camp is led by a licensed speech-language pathologist who is also certified as a listening and spoken language specialist in auditory verbal therapy. Graduate students from the Communication Science and Disorders school at FSU serve as camp counselors or “buddies” for the campers.
