Adolescent Social Skills

This social skills group session is for adolescents who are trying to build their social skills to support daily conversations with family at home, would like to make friends at school, and increase their participation in the community.

  • Teens aged 13 to 18 years
  • Conversation and problem solving skills
  • How to make and maintain friendships
  • Develop functional skills to get a job

The online nature of the group sessions appeal to teens who might be shy or nervous, and supports participants who may be usually wary of group situations or social interaction. The format also suits teens who are comfortable connecting and chatting in an online gaming or social environment.

Run by experienced speech and language pathologists and skilled group facilitators, Amy Coleman, Nicole Guinan and Sallyann Murray, participants will be guided through each weekly session, building a tool kit of questions, strategies and resources to prepare them to communicate more confidently. Amy, Nicole and Sallyann will brief each person prior to the sessions commencing to appropriately place them with other suitable participants and touch base approximately one month after to course to see how participants are going using their tool kit.

How it works:

  • Group sessions will run at the same time each week for either six or eight weeks starting in Term 1 2021.
  • The cost starts at $565.78* excluding gst for six weeks and is available to NDIS participants to use their improved daily living funds.
  • A service agreement will be sent to confirm enrolment.
  • The participant will need access to a device – phone, laptop, tablet, PC – and the internet.

*This amount is calculated on a minimum of six confirmed participants for a six week course.

FAQ

How do I pay for a group session?

There are a number of ways you can pay for Therapy Pro’s group sessions. You can use money from your NDIS allocation or you can pay as fee for service. We will set up a service agreement for you if you are an NDIS participant.

How do I access a session?

Currently all Therapy Pro group sessions are being run online. You will need access to a computer, tablet or mobile phone. You will need to have your video turned on and a microphone available so the facilitator can see and hear you.

I’m not sure learning online is right for me or my child

Our therapists are skilled in working and delivering the highest standards of therapy and intervention through an online platform. In some cases, online therapy provides a level of safety or distance some people prefer, and for young digital natives an online platform usually results in strong engagement in the session. Therapy Pro therapists are knowledgeable and experienced running group sessions and delivering interventions to children with an ASD diagnosis or communication delays.

What do I take away from the session?

At the end of a Therapy Pro group session, you will be provided with an individualised digital handbook outlining your feedback and progress, so you can continue with the strategies and tools at home.
