The DSACT Speech Program is now the Parent Empowering Articulation in Kids program. We are kicking off our new year and have many more volunteer opportunities for students. Our new program is 18 months long and meets twice a month during the first year so many more dates to choose to help out.
Evaluation days are primarily about room set up, video taping and helping to clean up while the therapists take kids back to their parents to get ready for the next participant.
Session days are spending time in a large gym space playing with the participants (up to 6 kids) for approximately 45 minutes while the therapists provide parent instruction. Then cleaning up and observing the participants perform speech exercises/activities with their parent. Possibly running errands to get items therapists may need during the session.
We have had many great student volunteers in the past and hope they have learned a lot from us and would love any volunteers from high school, college, parents, friends etc. No experience is needed except a friendly smile and ability to play!
