Thursday Teen Boys
Term 3 (9 Weeks)
This group is run for teenage boys with social skills difficulties, to create a supportive and encouraging group environment to teach social skills and allow for functional practice with age-matched peers under the supervision of speech pathologists. Need to be able to attend for conversational/non-literal language clinic-based tasks.
Often, people with social skills difficulties benefit and require continued support and intervention. Subsequently, many of the boys have been in the group for a few years and continue to strongly benefit from it and enjoy it. Due to this, and because each participant is different and has different goals, session topics are decided based off the group needs for that term. It is also essential that the topics remain flexible, so for example, if a participant mentioned difficulty with messaging online, the next week could cover cyber safety (as well as liaising with the parents).
