I have THE BEST news: I have been accepted to intern at CAMP CHATTERBOX this summer!!!!!
Check out the website here: http://www.campchatterbox.org
During the last ASHA conference, I had the incredible fortune to sit next to Joan Bruno – founder of this amazing camp (not to mention several other AAC tools, like the TASP) . We chatted on our way to our next session, and I was hooked. I came back from Chicago, and immediately applied to intern this summer. I’ve been officially accepted and I CAN’T WAIT!!!!
According to the website:
“Camp Chatterbox is a therapy camp for nonspeaking or severely speech-impaired children, ages 5 -16, who functionally use synthesized augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices. It is sponsored by the Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, NJ.”
This is an AMAZING opportunity! If you know someone who would benefit (AAC user, family member, or therapist) – I highly encourage you to share this information.
Come join us at Camp Chatterbox. I know it will be a great time!

Ashley, Camp Chatterbox is lucky to have you and it looks like you will learn lots from the students, families, and staff there, too! Your acceptance there is good news for everyone!
Thanks so much Kara! I’m beyond excited to soak up every minute.
