Reading Readiness Camp

The OSU Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic will have it's first-ever reading readiness camp this summer! We need your help to make it a success. Please consider donating.


This camp is to help increase a child’s alphabetical knowledge, including naming and sequential skills, increase a child’s knowledge of sound/symbol associations for all consonants, and increase a child’s ability to write. 5-15% of Americans have dyslexia, which makes it difficult to read and write. Access to books is an issue, and rural counties and areas have less available libraries and resources. Over 50% of fourth-graders read at or below the level they are supposed to. We want to help promote reading and literacy by making it fun and educational for the kids who participate.

Gender differences

Boys have a higher chance of getting a speech or language disorder.


SLI Disorders

Specific Language Impairment (SLI) is prevalent in approximately 7-8% of children. SLI is a disorder of unknown origins that could be caused by multiple factors. Children can develop normally, but still, have a problem with language.



Some kids have less access to resources in their rural communities, and we would like to help promote literacy so they can stay ahead on track with literacy skills.
