The outclient program expanded in 1996 and serves students from other schools with mild to moderate speech-language disorders and/or dyslexia. Approximately 40 students attend both one-on-one and small group sessions two to four times a week.
Led by nationally certified speech-language pathologists or master’s level academic therapists, outclient sessions are conducted at the DuBard School. During the summer sessions, local students are often joined by children seeking services from across the country.
The outclient therapy program provides fee-based individual and small group therapy for clients ages birth through adulthood who have a diagnosed language, speech or hearing disorders or a combination of these disabilities. Included are those whose learning differences are in oral language, reading or a combination of oral and written language deficits, including dyslexia. Therapy is conducted in 50-minute sessions two to four times weekly over an 11-month period.
