Groups

Throughout the year, South West Kids Clinic offers a number of group programs. Some of these programs are designed to develop a child’s ability to interact socially with peers of a similar age within a semi structured environment. Other groups are developed to build on specific skills such as storytelling or handwriting using a group format to add novelty to tasks that are otherwise challenging. Our programs are tailor made to the specific needs of each child within the group and each child has individual goals to achieve. We do not use generic, pre-developed programs within any of our groups.

The school holidays are fast approaching yet again and we have prepared a range of stimulating groups for your child to participate in over the holiday period to enhance the regular therapy sessions.
