Social Communication Groups
NBSLR currently runs Social Communication Groups.
This group is aimed at clients between the ages of 13 to 20 years. Clients are split into groups with students who are of a similar skill level and age. Currently, we run a group with year 8-10 students and a group for those who are in yr 12 and have recently finished high school.
These groups are adapted from the evidence-based PEERS social skills program. Within these groups, we aim to improve functional communication for members with their peers, family and those within their wider community.
Within this group members are taught important functional social skills and are given a space to practice these skills during the session. The group also targets some personal goals e.g. clear speech strategies.
We keep these groups as functional and fun as possible, adapting them to suit the individual needs of the clients. They run fortnightly during school terms.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss these groups further.
