Social Skills Group Therapy

We work hard to target the group sessions to meet the needs of each student.

Our social skills groups are a great way for your child to practise social skills in a functional environment i.e. with other people! Groups run 1 ½ hours each day, for 1 week during the school holidays. Each group has a minimum of 3 participants with one of our devoted speech pathologists working with the group. Students are grouped according to age/ year level.
