Gebbie Clinic to Host 'Fluency Camp' for Kids Who Stutter
June 26-28 camp will benefit children and their families, legal guardians
The Gebbie Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic at Syracuse University will present Speaking Orange, its annual fluency camp for kids who stutter.
The camp will run Wednesday, June 26, from 3-6 p.m. and Thursday and Friday, June 27-28, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Gebbie Clinic (621 Skytop Rd.) on South Campus.
The cost is $140 per person—$120 for anyone registering on or before Tuesday, June 18. For more information, call 315.443.4485 or visit gebbie.syr.edu. Walk-ups are welcomed.
Co-organizer Victoria Tumanova says Speaking Orange is for elementary school-aged children who stutter, as well as their parents, other family members and legal guardians. She and co-organizer Anita Lightburn will focus on the so-called ABCs of stuttering—affective, behavioral and cognitive factors.
Speaking Orange culminates with a capstone activity, highlighting each camper's attitudes and emotions about speaking.
Founded in 1972, the Gebbie Clinic is a state-of-the-art educational, clinical and research facility. In addition to serving as a training site for CSD graduate students, the clinic offers affordably priced audiology and speech-language services to the public.
