University of Ottawa Health Services Summer Program for Youth Who Stutter


A week-long day-camp for teens who stutter

Goal of the camp

This program is designed to give teenagers who stutter a safe and supportive place in which to “let stuttering out.” By studying their own pattern of stuttering, they are guided in making decisions about how to manage their speech. The focus of the camp will be learning to work through challenging speaking situations, fostering support amongst peers who stutter and establishing short and long-term communication goals for the next school  year.

Speech-related work will be interspersed with a daily sports break and social activities. Lunch at the university cafeteria is included in the fee.


  • Youth between 12-16 years
  • French and English speakers
  • Referral by a speech-language pathologist or family physician


July 09-13, 2018, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily


University of Ottawa main campus, Minto Sports Complex, 801 King Edward Ave, Ottawa, Ontario


Led by speech-language pathologist, Caroline Bredeson who specializes in stuttering and assisted by placement students studying in speech-language pathology.
