About our Team

 
Jenna Swartzberg Sommer
M.A., CCC-SLP
Jenna created Neurodiverse at Camp
to bring her expertise in inclusion planning
and neurodiversity advocacy 
back to her first home -- camp.
It's no secret that Jenna is a lifelong "camp person," with endless gratitude for her time as a camper and counselor. 
 
Jenna is a certified Speech Language Pathologist with over a decade of professional experience identifying and delivering services to children, adolescents, and young adults with all sorts of needs. She has partnered with public school systems, independent education communities, and individual families to build understanding and awareness of neurodiverse conditions and plan for accommodations. 
Jenna especially treasures her time as a faculty member at an independent school for children with Learning Differences, where she had the opportunity to accompany her neurodiverse students on various field trips, overnight experiences, and athletic endeavors.
 
She learned that there were two key components to a successful "off campus" experience for her students: ensuring that her students felt empowered to advocate for their own needs in the world, and working with other adults involved to quickly identify appropriate accommodations in times of need.
Jenna believes that "teachable moments" are everywhere if we are flexible enough to find them, and that the most valuable learning and growing often happens outside of the classroom. 
 
In her spare time, Jenna enjoys listening to podcasts, hiking, testing out new fidgets, and spending time with her husband and rescue dog.
 
Jenna identifies with the HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) label, and is most often overloaded by fluorescent lights, motion sickness, and the seams of socks.
