*Summer Speech-Language Specialty Clinics (SSC) Update:*

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Central Michigan University has announced that all events and gatherings scheduled to take place on CMU's campus are canceled through June 25, 2020. With the uncertainty of what will be taking place for the remainder of the summer, The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow College of Health Professions has made the decision to offer the 2020 SSC via telepractice service delivery. Telepractice is the application of telecommunications technology to the delivery of speech-language pathology services at a distance by linking the student clinician and their supervisor for assessment, intervention, and/or consultation with the child and their parents. All student clinicians are supervised by our clinical instructors during 100% of the sessions.

SSC will be offering the telepractice speech and language therapy for nine weeks starting the week of May 26 and going through the week ending July 31. We will be selecting approximately 40 campers to work with our clinicians one to three times a week. If you have not yet submitted your child's application for this year's SSC or did not receive this survey link and would like them to be considered for this telepractice service, please fill out this SSC 2020 Survey.

Once the survey results are received, we will contact you individually with additional information. Should you have any questions prior to that, please feel free to reach out to me via email.
