UISPEAKS Camp for kids and teens who stutter
Anu Subramanian, Clinical Coordinator
UISPEAKS (University of Iowa Summer Program to Educate Adolescents and Kids who Stutter) offers a summer daycamp for children ages 7-17 who stutter. Campers will be divided into two programs based on age: one for 7-12 year-olds and the other for teens.
The camps are held at the Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing Clinic at the University of Iowa.
Our over-arching goal for the program is to help campers to:
• Explore what stuttering is, and what it is not
• Become aware of their own unique way of stuttering
• Engage in group settings with others who stutter and learn to talk openly about their speech
• Make decisions about what changes they would like to make in either speaking or stuttering, or both
• Provide opportunities for speaking in a variety of communication situations.
Need addtional details? The 2019 flyer and registration form (7-12 years | teen camper) may be downloaded; the student rules of conduct, emergency protocols, and application for discounted fees form are also available.
The fee for the camp for 7-12 year olds is $250. The fee for the teen program is $300 to reflect additional costs for evening activities. Fee reductions based on family income are available. Support for travel costs also may be available.
