TELL Program

T.E.L.L stands for Teaching Engagement and Lifelong Language. This program is for adults with Down syndrome and focuses on enhancing communication by providing useful, beneficial, and individualized support for each participant. The goal is to increase individual progress to effectively communicate wants and needs. The class is led by University of Cincinnati Speech-Language Pathology graduate students under the supervision of licensed Speech-Language Pathologist, Kendra Thornock.

The T.E.L.L. program is 10-weeks long with sessions building upon each other. Our Speech-Language Pathologist and graduate students will meet with each participant and a caregiver ahead of time to identify needs and set personalized goals. We offer the T.E.L.L. program twice a year – in the fall and spring.
