Summer Communication Boot Camp

The Summer Communication Boot Camp at AutismUp is a 6 week long collaborative speech program developed for individuals 16+ years old who are nonverbal or have limited verbal skills. Participants should already use or be interested in trialing an Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) device. Qualified participants will be paired one-on-one with a graduate student from the Nazareth College Communications Sciences and Disorders program. The program will be broken up into three intensive hour-long blocks: individual focused teaching, group practice, and individual review and skill reinforcement. At the end of the program, participants will be able to leave with greater AAC skills, an update to their current system, or a recommendation for a long-term system that can be implemented with their Speech and Language Pathologist. SPACE IS LIMITED.
