Rees Summer Communication Support Services

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

PIONEER PALS - a summer camp for children with autism

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. 

Summer 2020 dates to be announced in the Spring.


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.  

Our summer clinic typically offers 5-week sessions at a cost of $300.  Clients are typically seen three days per week, Monday through Thursday, for 60 minutes. Our first appointments start at 9:00 a.m. and last appointments at 3:00 p.m. Information on how to apply for Summer 2020 will be posted in the Spring.
