Group Occupational Therapy Services
Group Therapy provides opportunities for socialisation with peers and opportunities for friendships to develop. Goals include making friends, developing confidence & self-esteem, and improving listening skills and conversation skills.
Group Therapy is an excellent opportunity for children to be able to develop their skills in a less pressurised environment than individual therapy.
There are many benefits to attending group therapy, such as the opportunity for your child to;
- Teach and learn from other children
- Practise skills in a more natural learning environment
- Build their confidence in using their communication skills with friends
- Children will learn co-operation and negation skills
- Have fun and make some new friends!
