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. 

For Summer 2020, we will be providing speech therapy services via TELEPRACTICE.  

TELEPRACTICE is the use of live-streaming to provide speech therapy, linking clinicians to clients who are an appropriate fit for this model. Telepractice is shown to be as effective as in-person consultation. Clinicians must follow the same Code of Ethics and Scope of Practice in Speech-Language Pathology, as well as state and federal laws. To participate, clients should have a device with camera and microphone, and reliable internet access. Clients who are under the age of 18 must have an adult present. Adult clients who would benefit from guided support should also have another adult present to help.

The summer clinic will run June 15th through July 24th, on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays for 45 minute long sessions.

For clients who may be interested, the Aphasia Treatment Program (ATP) will have a separate TELEPRACTICE group program on Mondays and Wednesdays.

PIONEER PALS - a summer camp for children with autism

Due to COVID-19, we will not be able to offer Pioneer Pals this summer. 

Campers practice social communication skills in the context of fun and engaging themed activities, arts and crafts, outdoor play, music, and more. The focus of our camp is on building camper skills in the context of authentic relationships and interactions with supervisors, peers, and volunteers. We welcome siblings of campers to help us create an inclusive community for young children with autism, learning new ways to interact and play with their brother/sister.

Children ages 3-10 are eligible to participate, along with one additional sibling. Pioneer Pals may consider an additional sibling within this age range.  Campers with no siblings are also welcome.  Camp typically runs Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cal State East Bay Rees Speech Clinic, MB1099 on the Hayward campus.
