Group Therapy Programs

Group sessions promote peer learning in an interactive, motivating and supportive group environment. 

Our group programs are designed to supplement the learning a child is already doing (e.g. at school, at home, or in 1-on-1 speech pathology) by building on existing skills. Most importantly, these groups encourage the children in the group to learn from one another. We often find that children thrive in this group setting, and come out of the program feeling confident and empowered to apply the new skills that they have learnt. Group programs offer a reliable and affordable way of maximising your child's exposure to learning. 

All of our programs are evidence-based, and carefully planned and facilitated by qualified speech pathologists and/or occupational therapists.

Term Time Programs

Holiday Intensive Programs

Literacy Group Programs and 1:1 Holiday Intensives

Speech pathologists are the recognised experts in school-aged literacy. Our literacy group programs are designed for children who may benefit from extra support with reading, spelling and writing skills.  We tailor the groups or 1:1 intensive sessions to suit the needs of the child depending on whether they mostly need support with reading and spelling skills (phonics), reading comprehension or written language (creative writing) skills. When you enquire we can discuss the program that may best suit your needs. 

Lego® Based Therapy Programs

Lego® based therapy is a social development program for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other social communication difficulties. It uses children’s interest and motivation for playing with Lego® to help them develop communication and social skills. Lego® based therapy offers a ‘‘naturalistic’’ approach to social skills development which can improve generalisation of social skills. (Delprato 2001; Kohler et al. 1997). Learning in real-life situations improves the generalisation of skills to everyday settings.

Social Programs

Our Social Programs are all about promoting social communication skills and confidence.  Our Social Programs offer a fun and natural way to approach social communication, emotional regulation, resilience and life skill development which can improve generalisation of important skills into everyday life. We want participants to feel that they are valuable members of their community and for them to feel independent and empowered.

OT Group Programs

The Happy Hands Group Programs are all about promoting fine motor development, confidence and social skills to participate in learning and everyday tasks at school and in the community. The program is ideal for children between the ages of 5 to 8.

Little Learners – Parent and Toddler Program

Our Little Learners program is designed for parents and their toddlers. Guided by our experienced Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapists, the program is designed to provide parents with a greater understanding of their child’s communication, behaviour, and play development. It provides parents with an opportunity to share their experiences and learning with other parents and it gives the children an opportunity to interact with one another during play.

School Readiness Group Programs

A lot changes when a child transitions from daycare to school, and at Sydney Speech Clinic we are passionate about making this transition as smooth as possible. We have designed a unique program that teaches children everything they need to know before school, delivered in a fun and interactive group environment. Our mission is to have every parent and child feeling equipped and excited for Day One!
