Learning to communicate in a Group Setting

November 6, 2017 Contributed by Admin

As your child’s speech and communications skills come along, it is important for them to learn how to put them to use in a social setting. The abilty to question, negotiate and clarify with other children are best learned while interacting with other children. We are running a group focusing on socio-communication skills and group skills, and we are adding a second block of sessions. There is now space for more children aged JK and Grade 2 to join!
