GROUPS

Early Start Speech Pathology offers a range of social groups every school holidays. Early Start Speech Pathology’s groups are evidence based and run by qualified Speech Pathologists.
For full details about any of our groups, please click on one on the images below.
The groups are based around children’s interests such as Lego, Pokemon and movies. We are constantly developing our groups so our clients can keep benefiting from ongoing support during the school holidays.  Early Start Speech Pathology’s groups are a great way for the children to practice their skills they have learnt with their therapists during term in a safe, supportive environment.

If your child is not a current client of Early Start Speech Pathology but you would like them to attend a group, you will be required to have a brief clinic session.

This is to ensure that we are able to meet your child’s individual needs and that we can group them with peers performing at a similar level.

The skills targeted in the groups are:

  • Turn taking
  • Listening and following instructions from a peer
  • Being part of a group
  • Expression of instructions
  • Play skills
  • Non verbal communication
  • Joining in conversation about shared interests
  • Making friends

Early Start Speech Pathology have groups available in the Summer Holidays and throughout term 1.  This January school holidays we are running our ever popular 3 day LEGO Social Club, and 2 day MAD SCIENTISTS group. The kids went crazy for MAD SCIENTISTS last term and had a total blast. We are also offering a single session of both our LEGO SOCIAL CLUB and MAD SCIENTISTS to make it affordable and accessible for all families.

Our GIRLS CLUB is back this Summer, ready for some crafty fun.

We are introducing a NEW group to our amazing social skill program: SOCIAL SUPERHERO’S. This group will get the kids thinking like social superhero’s to save the town from unexpected behaviour. It’s going to be great!

We will run a SCHOOL READINESS Group 3 day intensive with our friends at Ability Focus Occupational Therapy to get all our budding school starters off on the right foot.

The TEEN CONNECT group runs each Monday afternoon and will be starting again in term 1. We will be running one of our popular groups through out term. Keep an eye on here for dates and times.
