Summer Camps


Lively Letters Literacy Day Camp

Why Lively Letters?

Lively Letters is a research-based and clinically proven program since 1990. It quickly closes gaps in phonemic awareness, phonics and sight words skills. This program reaches different types of learners by using emotion, art, imagery, music, humorous stories and mouth/hand cues.

It is a great intervention program for students of ALL ages and it simultaneously trains phonemic awareness, speech production and phonics. Lively Letters uses an inter-sensory approach which links sounds to the visual shapes of letters and to mouth movements.

Speak & Ride Day Camp

Why Speak & Ride?

We make language therapy happen in a natural learning environment.

Speak & Ride is a unique summer program that combines horseback riding with intensive speech-language therapy in a country stable setting.

Our approach focuses on setting individual goals and incorporating therapy into this back-to-nature experience. A horse stable is an ideal environment for fostering speech-language development. Children participate in a variety of activities and build self esteem as well as confidence. We emphasize safety and enjoyment as your child learns.

Our unique approach incorporates your child’s individual goals into their adventures at the stables. Throughout each day there is a focus on each child’s speech and language development.

Program Coordinator, Sarah Aljas and other Speech-Language Pathology staff at Anderson Speech Consultants actively participate in our Speak & Ride Program.
