Groups

Peninsula Speech Pathology believe groups are a great alternative to individual therapy and for many of our clients offer the opportunity to develop and practice new skills amongst peers.

Group Therapy

We run a range of groups throughout school terms and we also run intensive programs during School Holidays.

Groups are tailored according to the skills and needs of the children in the group so content and activities are flexible to accommodate this.

Available group programs include:

  • Social Skills
  • School readiness
  • Language
  • Articulation
  • Feeding

Term Groups

Our term groups run for the middle eight weeks of term (not week 1 and week 10).  The groups have a yearly curriculum however this is adapted to meet the changing needs of the group.

When joining a new group, a meet and greet with the group lead is required.  This is to ensure that that the group goals are going to meet the participants goals.  It also helps to orientate the participant to the clinic, clinician and provides a chance to discuss features of the program.  This helps reduce any anxiety that might be experienced.

Term groups run for 60 mins with parent feedback at the end being a crucial part.

Holiday Programs

We love our intensive programs.  We aim to structure these programs around functional activities, allowing for a range of different experiences.  The programs change each term, based on the feedback and needs of the Peninsula Speech Plus Community.

When joining a program, a meet and greet with the program lead is required.  This is to ensure that that the program goals are going to meet the participants goals.  It also helps to orientate the participant to the clinic, clinician and provides a chance to discuss features of the program.  This helps reduce any anxiety that might be experienced.

The programs run over two or three days and are usually between 2 to 3 hours on each day.  The programs are enhanced by feedback to parents/carers as well as handouts to ensure that carryover to everyday life occurs.

We would love to hear from you about what programs you are interested in.  Our team is innovative and love to create programs to meet your needs.
