LiFT Camps

The LiFT camps are very special and families travel from all over Ireland and Great Britain to attend. Children who attend the LiFT camps are seen in small matched groups i.e. 4-5 children and the ratio of children to Listening Therapist is generally 3:1.

The LiFT camps are great fun and each child has opportunities to engage in sensory activities with arts and crafts whilst listening to the music. LiFT  camps take place in a language-rich environment, which is highly conducive to regulating, learning, interacting and engaging.
