Communication Groups

Our Communication groups for pre-school and primary age children are up and running. We are currently running every other Saturday in term time from a Maidstone location. They are speech therapy led groups with an emphasis on social skills, conversations, friendships, and relationships. The groups provide additional support for children and young people to build self-awareness, awareness of others and socially appropriate behaviour. The groups are designed to complement the individualised speech programs that children and young people will already have running but does not replace. Each term is topic based and allows children and young people to explore each topic in a fun and inclusive environment. Topics include things like; all about me, relationships, community, time, language for identity and transitions. If you need assistance accessing NHS or school therapy then our team can sign post you to services to help you with that as well.

These groups can provide an excellent base to later move into our Circle Groups when the time is right.

How do I sign up?
