Rees Summer Communication Support Services

clinicians and clients at Pioneer Pals summer camp for kids with autism

Individual Evaluation and Treatment

We are pleased to offer summer therapy services for individuals with communication impairments. Our communication support services include speech and language evaluations and treatment, and the development of individualized home programs. All can apply for services; no referral is required.  An evaluation, also called an assessment, must first be done at our teaching clinic before therapy services can be considered.

PIONEER PALS - Social Communication Summer Camp

Camp Pioneer Pals is geared towards children ages  3 –10 interested in building on their social communication skills while participating in developmentally appropriate, engaging, and fun activities. Campers will learn new skills, make friends, and be supported by a team of speech pathologists, education specialists and related professionals in an enriching indoor-outdoor space.  We welcome siblings (one per camper with a disability) to join us in creating an inclusive community for all campers. Supervised by certified speech language pathologists, Pioneer Pals focuses on activities that promote friendships and social interactions.

In Summer 2022, Pioneer Pals ran two-week camps Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am. to 12:00 p.m. during the month of July at the Hayward campus.
