Programs and holiday intensives

Our team is innovative and love to create programs to meet your needs.

We run a range of programs throughout school terms and we also run intensive programs during School Holidays.

Programs are tailored according to the skills and needs of the children in the group so content and activities are flexible to accommodate this.

Term Programs

Peninsula Speech Plus believe programs in groups are a great alternative to individual therapy and for many of our clients offer the opportunity to develop and practice new skills amongst peers.

These programs run during school term.  The programs have a yearly curriculum however this is adapted to meet the changing needs of the group.

When joining a new program, a meet and greet with the program leader is required.  This is to ensure that that the program goals are going to meet the participant’s goals.  It also helps to orientate the participant to the clinic, clinician and provides a chance to discuss features of the program.  This helps reduce any anxiety that might be experienced.

Term groups run for 60 mins.  Parent feedback and handouts are accessed through our student portal.  

Intensive Programs (holidays)

We love our intensive programs.  We aim to structure these programs around functional activities, allowing for a range of different experiences.  The programs change each term, based on the feedback and needs of the Peninsula Speech Plus Community.

When joining a program, a meet and greet with the program lead is required.  This is to ensure that that the program goals are going to meet the participants goals.  It also helps to orientate the participant to the clinic, clinician and provides a chance to discuss features of the program.  This helps reduce any anxiety that might be experienced.

The programs run over two or three days and are usually between 2 to 3 hours on each day.  The programs are enhanced by feedback to parents/carers as well as handouts to ensure that carryover to everyday life occurs.

We would love to hear from you about what programs you are interested in.  Our team is innovative and love to create programs to meet your needs.

Monday Teen Girls

Social thinking is what we do when we interact with people- we think about them. How we think about people affects how we behave, how others respond to us, and our own emotions. Our social skills sessions develop children’s skills to think about others and how to modify their behaviours in response. Sessions develop theory of mind, perspective, self-awareness and others, body language, the way we talk, conversation skills and assertiveness.
