GROUP THERAPY

Developing and running group therapy programs is a passion of ours here at Bloom Lifespan Therapy Services.

Over the last three years, our clients have continued to inspire the development of each of our evidence-based group therapy programs, all of which have grown in popularity and produced amazing results for participants and their families.

 

“Group therapy is a functional way of helping your child learn new things and practice their goals in a realistic setting. For example, if you are training to become a professional swimmer you can weight train and go for daily runs but the true test is when you get in the water and race alongside your competitors. Group therapy takes on a similar path. It is important to get the one-on-one support you need to gear up for the real world but mastering and transferring your goals to the real world takes place when you practice what you have learned outside of one-on-one settings.

Therapy provides:

  • Modelling and support and from a qualified Speech-Language Pathologist and/or Occupational Therapist to help your child reach their goals
  • Support from peers and building of confidence through newfound friendships
    Peer communication within realistic social settings
  • Practice in a setting that mimics a real-world environment (a classroom, play date with friends)
  • The ability for your child to teach and learn from others
  • Cost efficiency

“Whether group therapy is targeting social communication (turn taking, staying on topic, initiating conversations) or building language skills, it is an exciting way to help children reach their full potential. Group therapy offers a supportive network and trusting environment where children can grow with and from each other”.
