The Child Language Center/Wings on Words (WOW) is a language-enriched program for children 2 – 5 years of age.

  • During the school year, WOW provides a full-day preschool and toddler curriculum with individualized speech and language therapy provided for children with speech and language delays. During the summer, its intensive, 6-week summer day camp provides a unique learning experience for all children with intensive therapy provided for children with speech and language needs.
