Communication Group

Hedleys Horizons

Communication groups provide the opportunity for you to develop and practise social skills within a supportive setting. These skills may include turn-taking, maintaining topics of discussion, listening and responding to others, and using augmentative and alternative communication where appropriate. If you are funded for speech and language therapy, this group can provide them with opportunities to work towards your communication aims.

Aims:

  • Social inclusion with your peers.
  • Develop your social communication skills using a total communication approach.
  • Develop greater advocacy skills.
  • Build meaningful relationships with others.
