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.
