LAFF camp focuses on helping children develop readiness and acceptance of trying new foods while improving language and social skills. Children work in small groups and each child has an assigned speech pathology graduate student to explore and investigate foods of various colors, smells, textures and tastes. Language skills are addressed as we describe the different foods and what we can do with them.

Did you know you can stretch, squish, bend, cut, fold, squeeze and pinch a Fruit Roll-Up? Parents/caregivers are encouraged to participate so activities learned in LAFF camp can be carried over and practiced at home.
