WeSpeak Mentor Training
We are currently accepting applications for our two upcoming summer WeSpeak sessions:
-July 13-17 (lead-ins July 9-10): 10-13 year-olds
-August 3-7 (lead-ins July 30-31): 14-17 year-olds
WeSpeak mentors receive intensive clinical training and supervision by Dr. Shelley Avny in working with tweens/teens with SM. The one-to-one mentor model offers trainees a unique experience in providing hands-on, clinical support to these hard-working and resilient kids. In addition to the didactic and experiential training prior to WeSpeak, mentors receive live coaching and daily group supervision throughout the intensive week.
Training for both training sessions will be held July 6th-7th from 10:00 am-3:00 pm (out of town mentors can participate remotely). Mentors must be available for the full program length, lead-in sessions, and the training. Mentor hours are 8:00 am-4:30 pm the week of WeSpeak, and somewhat flexible during lead-ins.
Graduate students, mental health professionals, and speech/language pathologists are encouraged to apply!
