Why do we LOVE group therapy?

We run a selection of social groups over the school holidays which integrate creative speech and occupational therapy into engaging programs that are all about kids having fun! But why do we do this? Group therapy is an amazing opportunity for our clients to practice the skills they've learnt in their one-on-one sessions in a safe space. Our groups are designed to help kids learn about:

  • Verbal communication
  • Body language cues
  • Being part of a team
  • Expressing their thoughts and feelings
  • Caring about others' 
  • Problem-solving
  • Listening
  • Standing up for yourself and others
  • Managing conflict

Sounds pretty boring for a kid right? WRONG! Our groups are a tonne of fun, so much so that our clients often don't realise they're learning essential social skills that will help them thrive in the schoolyard and home. Check out this video of our Sensory Lab group last April 👇
