Small Group Therapy

Small Group Therapy

A social environment to learn and practise new skills.

Who is it for?
Small Group Therapy is for families who would like their 0 to 8 year old child to work on goals together with a small group of children who have similar needs.

What is it?
Small Group Therapy provides an opportunity for children to learn and practice skills in a group with a Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Psychologist or Early Childhood Special Educator. A Child Care Worker also supports the group. It is also an opportunity to meet other parents or care givers.

How does it work?
The group meets at Noah’s for one and a half hours, once a week during term time. Each group focuses on a particular area. For example one Small Group may focus on communication, while another focuses on play skills, motor skills or sensory needs. They provide multiple opportunites to practise skills.

How much do I pay?
Families pay $70 per term for this program.

What funding is relevant?
The remaining cost per term, which is $1,200, is funded by:

  • Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC)
  • Department of Social Services Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) and Better Start Initiative (BSI)

Children who are approved for HCWA or BSI funding can claim $1,200 per term.
There are funded places available for children who are not eligible for HCWA or BSI funding.

How do I enrol?
Contact Noah’s Inclusion Services on 02 4423 5022 or complete the Referral Intake form and hand it to Noah’s reception or your Noah’s contact. Priority will be given to children who are not accessing any other intervention service.
