    Gee-Gees Summer camps

    Two Gee-Gees summer camps took place, thanks to a joint initiative of the Interprofessional University Clinic in Primary Health Care, two professors from the School of Rehabilitation Sciences (Rose Martini, Jacinthe Savard), a professor from the Faculty of Education (Raymond Leblanc), and the Gee-Gees, along with a $10,000 Development of Interdisciplinary Initiatives grant from the University. These two camps, which took place in June and July, were aimed at students with language acquisition and/or coordination difficulties. The camps also provided internships for students in the Speech-Language Pathology and Occupational Therapy programs.
    Afterwards, the camps’ performance was evaluated by Occupational Therapy and Education students.  Prior to the camp, the children had worked with staff to set out goals for themselves, such as learning to ride a bicycle, improving reading skills, learning to tie their shoelaces and so on. All participants agreed that for a first-time project, the camps were a smashing success!
