The 7th annual Summer Stuttering Camp for Teens, ages 12-18, will take place this summer in June at the University of Washington Speech and Hearing Clinic. Through a combination of individual treatment sessions and group activities, the goal is for teen participants to communicate effectively, have options for approaching their stuttering, be able to manage moments of tension, and work alongside peers who stutter to develop healthy attitudes and emotional responses to their stuttering. All these goals are achieved through a combination of personalized therapy with graduate student clinicians and fun group activities including creating memes, bowling, eating out at restaurants, and playing games. Teens explore talking and stuttering while creating life long friends!
This workshop will be led by two ASHA certified speech‐language pathologists who have collectively been working with children, adolescents, and adults who stutter for 21 years. Elyse Lambeth, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS‐F works as a speech‐language pathologist at Seattle Children’s Hospital and coordinates a fluency clinic there. Melissa Kokaly, MS, CCC-SLP is currently a Lecturer and Clinical Supervisor, and Fluency Unit head at the University of Washington Speech and Hearing Clinic.
The Summer Stuttering Camp for Teens is supported by a generous grant from Seattle Children’s Childhood Communication Center.
