Registration for Students who do not attend Stepping Stones: For all students who are not currently enrolled in the Stepping Stones Program and are applying to Wiggles & Giggles Camp, a review of the student’s learning profile is necessary to determine if the summer program will meet the needs of each student. Open registration for students who do not attend the Speech School begins on February 22. The following information is required and will be reviewed for possible placement in Wiggles & Giggles Camp:
- Camp Application Form
- Early Childhood Questionnaire Form – An Early Childhood Questionnaire Form, to be completed by child’s current teacher, is required for those children who are enrolled in a preschool or school program other than one at the Atlanta Speech School.
- Current Speech Language Evaluation – A current Speech Language Evaluation is required and parents may be asked to have their children participate in an observation at the school. The purpose of the observation is to help determine speech and language needs and whether our program will meet the needs of each child.
