Summer Speech Therapy Program
Old Salem Sertoma Club supports the Summer Speech Therapy Program. This program is offered to students in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County, North Carolina, area who are receiving group therapy services through the school system. Its purpose is to provide individualized services that allows students to maintain and build upon progress achieved during the school year.
Each summer, 100+ students are served. Diagnoses consist of mild to severe articulation and fluency delays, some associated with hearing loss. Tuition is charged but scholarships are available and costs are defrayed through Sertoma's support. The program is organized and funded by the Interclub Council of the Henry C. Carter District of Sertoma, which includes Old Salem Sertoma Club.
