Peach Speech runs a number of social skills groups throughout the year. They consist of a small group gathering of (2-6) individuals with aligned ages or skills, who come together to learn how to successfully convey their thoughts and feels through words and gestures in a way that others can perceive the intended meaning and significance. It is a supported environment to develop companionship and practice relating with others.
Who: Aimed at individuals who would benefit from additional opportunities to learn about social and emotion skills or experience difficulties with friendships, bullying, or low self-confidence.
What: explicit teaching of social skills and opportunities to practice practical application of socially and emotionally appropriate behaviours. Focus includes:
- Friendships, interacting with peers and considering others
- Conversation skills
- Reading and using social cues
- Self-regulation and managing emotions
Why: to enhance individual’s participation in family life, groups and the wider community. Improving social awareness can also help transition to high school and into the workplace.
When, where and cost: details vary based on the group. Please contact us for further details.
