Speech clinics offered for children


GREENVILLE – FAME is sponsoring two summer speech clinics for preschool and school-age children with speech/language impairments.

Each clinic will run for two weeks straight with students being seen every weekday for approximately 20 minutes. The clinics will be held at the Darke County Educational Service Center in Greenville.

The first clinic will run from June 18-29. The second clinic will be held July 9-20. The cost for each clinic is $40, and financial assistance for part of the fee is available on a limited basis.

Children who are not currently enrolled in speech therapy or have not had their speech screened recently will be screened on their first day of therapy to determine if they are appropriate to attend. It is recommended that children be at least 3 years of age in order to benefit from these therapy sessions.

For more information or to sign up a child for the speech screening or for one of the summer clinics, call 548-4915.
