Preschool Class

Social Skills Groups

We run social skills and anxiety management groups for preschool, primary, intermediate and high school aged students. 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!

Talk Together groups support children to:​

  • Make friends & keep them

  • Talk about their emotions

  • Pick up on social cues

  • Navigate social conflicts

  • Manage their anxiety

We run our groups online and across Canterbury as after-school and school holiday block courses. Each group will have two qualified Talk Together facilitators  and parents will receive an email summary at the conclusion of the program outlining all aspects covered and information on how to practice strategies learned at home & school.

LEGO Therapy!

Does your child love LEGO or creating? Could they benefit from support with their social skills or regulating their own emotions? This is for them! Suitable for children 5-17 years of age. Students will work in small groups with 2-3 other peers of the same age/ability. Student’s individual goals will be supported by Talk Together facilitators who are trained in the techniques of LEGO Therapy. We use activities all involving LEGO to work on making & maintaining friendships, team work and communication skills, conflict resolution, reading social clues from others & emotional regulation strategies.
