Speech Therapy Group Programmes
Click on the links below to find out about the fabulous small group programmes being offered by our Speech Therapists and Occupational Therapists:
This programme introduces children to strategies to help them cope with various social situations, enabling them to practice in a comfortable, safe environment. These groups are for primary school aged children.
This group is for our Littlies - for 3-4 year olds. It aims to prepare children for more structured learning environments at Kindy and Pre-Primary and promotes fine motor, gross motor, language, social and play skills.
This group helps children develop their phonemic awareness skills which are the building blocks required for reading and writing skills. Children who struggle to identify the alphabet letter sounds, struggle to identify real rhyming words or find it difficult to take apart and build words. Children will practice these skills to enhance their confidence with reading and writing.
