Reading day camp takes place in July

The camp is for children who have difficulty with reading and language.

The School of Allied Health Professions department of communication sciences and disorders is holding an intensive phonological awareness and literacy day camp July 18 through July 29.

The program is designed for incoming kindergarten through third-grade students who are either having difficulty in beginning reading and language or who are at-risk for difficulty with reading and language.

“Participants will have fun while focusing on the building blocks of reading: literature awareness, syllable awareness, rhyme awareness, segmenting and blending,” says Jennifer St. Clair, MS, assistant professor and director of clinical education, department of communication sciences and disorders.

The early-bird cost is $75 per child for the two-week-long camp if registered before June 15. Register online at https://campscui.active.com/orgs/LomaLindaUniversity. Starting June 15, the price rises to $90 per child.
