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 free group screener 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 July 2019  school holidays and throughout term 3, 2019.

These school holidays we are running our ever popular  MAD SCIENTISTS, the kids go crazy for it and have a total blast.

Our LEGO CREATORS is on again. The children will work in small groups with set challenges and build an amazing creation together

TEEN CONNECT will be running as a group in the July School holidays as well as again in term 3 on Monday afternoons. It’s a great group for our teens to get together and connect about the real issues that are happening in their lives. Our speech pathologists work with them to build their social communication skills and social awareness. We love hearing the laughter coming from the teen room on a Monday afternoon.

POKEMON CLUB is back for the school holidays in July. Come and talk Pokemon, trade, battle and hunt.

Girls with social communication challenges can learn social rules differently. Come and join our GIRLS RULE club for some crafty fun, working on those tricky social nuances.
