About: Social Language Expedition is designed to improve the pragmatic language (social communication) skills of children who have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and those who are not diagnosed with ASD but experience language deficits with social communication. 

                Length of Program: Each session is 2 weeks Monday - Thursday for 3 hours a day

                Session 1: 9am - 12 pm, M-Th July 11-14, M-Th July 18-21

                Session 2: 9-am - 12pm, M-Th July 25-28, M-Th Aug 1-4

Age Range: Children age 4 through 9. After assessment and enrollment, children will be placed in a group by our licensed and certified speech-language pathologists. 

Location: New Orleans Speech and Hearing Center- Uptown 

Goals: During the expedition experience, the campers will improve their ability to use rituals, such as greeting and responding appropriately, following conversational rules, and participating in joint conversations in a more age-appropriate manner. They will improve their skills to give and ask for information concisely and meaningfully, understand and express complex age-appropriate intentions, and read and/or use body language appropriately for nonverbal communication.
