At Speech Ease, we run social skills and literacy groups throughout the year.
These groups are deliberately kept small so that each child can get the individual attention from the Speech Pathologist. Our groups are mostly aimed at children who have low to average language and cognitive skills with emphasis on matching children to peers with similar interests and skills.
Our therapists are trained in evidence based approaches to literacy such as Multi Sensory Structured Learning (MSL) and the Sounds Write program. Our intensive literacy groups (max 5 children) are great especially for children who are struggling with reading and spelling.
Social skills groups use primarily the Social Thinking concepts and are well suited for children who have average or near average language skills. We also use other group curriculum and activities such as Lego to engage children in social skills groups. Groups run in school holidays and some continue throughout the year. Fees typically range between $90-$95 per child, per session and are DSS and NDIS eligible (NDIS clients need to check their plans to ensure group programs are eligible).
