Camp for Teens who Stutter

There is also a week-long day-camp for teens who stutter, organized by a registered speech pathologist and students from the Speech Language Pathology program at the University of Ottawa. This program is designed to give teenagers who stutter asafe and supportive place in which to “let stuttering out.” By studying their own pattern of stuttering, they are guided in making decisions about how to manage their speech. The focus of the camp will be learning to work through challenging speaking situations, fostering support amongst peers who stutter and establishing short and long term communication goals for the next school year. Speech-related work will include a daily sports break and social activities. Lunch at the cafeteria is included in the fee. It takes place at the Perley-Rideau Veteran's Health Care Centre, 150 Russell Road. The cost is $500 and the registration form is here. NOTE: The deadline for application has been extended to Friday June 14th, 2019. You can call 613-526-7125 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
