Group Speech and Language Therapy Services 

Group Therapy provides an excellent opportunity for children to develop their speech, language and communication skills in a more natural, less pressurised environment than individual therapy.

During groups children have the chance to:

  • Copy and learn from other children
  • Develop attention skills and the ability to take turns
  • Learn co-operation and negation skills
  • Build their confidence in using their communication skills with friend
  • All group sessions are 45 minutes in length and cost €15 per child.
