SPEECH PATHOLOGY GROUPS

Working together to improve communication and swallowing skills

Wollongong Speech Pathology offers group therapy to many of our clients. Group therapy has many benefits! People enjoy supporting each other and making new friendships. Group therapy offers a different dynamic to one-to-one therapy, especially with communication. The way people talk in a group is often very different to the way people talk one-on-one. We invite people to attend group therapy so that they can work on their communication skills in new contexts.

PEERS Social Skills

PEERS for Young Adults is a 16-week evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated young adults, who are interested in learning skills to make and keep friends and develop romantic relationships. During each group session, young adults are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills.

Young adults must attend each session with a social coach (i.e., parent, family member, adult sibling, life coach, job coach, peer mentor, etc.) Social coaches are taught how to assist young adults in making and keeping friends by providing feedback during weekly socialization homework assignments.

Enrollment is limited.

  • Young adults ages 18-30 years old, graduated from high school, having friendship problems, and interested in attending.

  • Young adults must have a consistent social coach willing to attend the program each week.

  • Sessions are 90 minutes long, and run weekly for 16 weeks
