Dedicated to supporting children to reach their 

FULL COMMUNICATION POTENTIAL

Christchurch speech language therapy

About Us

Talk Together are Christchurch speech & language therapists who provide evidence-based & neurodiversity affirming practices for speech & language therapy and social skills development groups. These services are provided for children between the ages of 0-18 years and their families across Christchurch and wider New Zealand.

 

Support is provided for all types of communication challenges including language, speech, listening, social skills, reading, writing & spelling. Not addressed, these challenges change the trajectory of children's lives. 

Set your child up for a lifetime of great communication and healthy relationships! If your child is experiencing an issue with communication - whether it be mild, moderate, or severe - we want to help. You and your child will enjoy fun & interactive sessions while tackling communication challenges.​​

None of us take for granted the privilege it is to be let into kid's lives and be a part of their communication journey - they are why we do what we do.

Christchurch-based in-person sessions are an individually crafted program for your child based on neurodiversity affirming practices.

 These sessions are conducted at a frequency that will suit your family.

These groups support kids to develop communication skills, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, and strategies for managing anxiety with a focus on how to form friendships and maintain them. All while having fun!

We understand that attending an in-person therapy session can be burdensome on busy families and so we offer tele-therapy for convenience and flexibility.

LEGO- April School Holidays

This is a 4 hour programme run across two consecutive days. Suitable for 5-12 year olds.

Students will work in small groups with similar aged peers supported by our facilitators.

Using LEGO is an evidence-based and proven way to build strong social, emotional and team work skills while having fun! Kids work in small groups guided by one of our multidisciplinary facilitators to engage in LEGO build projects with others.

LEGO & creating is the vehicle used to achieve student goals as it taps into something kids already love (but often do solo) and layers in social communication and interaction with others. Areas such as emotional regulation and conflict resolution are also supported.

As always our Talk Together groups are tailored to the children attended and kids are supported to work towards their individual goals within a group setting.

10-13 years Social Skills Groups

This is the age where things get complicated!

There is often a need to 'read the social scene' in situations that in the past were very 'black & white'.

Our focus here is a smooth transition for kids through this phase and robust skills for making friends and 'keeping up' with the social challenges faced while building self confidence.
