2019 Summer Program


Basic Concepts offers a variety of classes for children preschool through middle school. We utilize numerous therapeutic interventions (sensory, play, music, social and behavioral) throughout all of our daily activities for maximum achievement. Our Summer programs are intended for children who have mild to moderate deficits in speech, language, play, sensory, and socialization. Children participate in both small and whole group activities to ensure that their individual goals are met. Speech language pathologists and special educators provide services in all our classrooms. All college counselors are intensively trained and have extensive background in working with children with special needs.
