PALS Group Therapy

Kids on the autism spectrum want to make friends and fit in, but often need help learning the skills required to do so. The PALS group therapy program has been used worldwide to help preschoolers learn important social skills, like how to take turns, interact with their carers and peers, and share. Gateway Therapies are running the PALS program for 3 – 6 year olds at their Carina clinic, every Monday at 11:00am. The sessions are led by an experienced Occupational Therapist and Speech Therapist. This is an evidence-based program, and HCWA approved. For more information or to register visit http://gatewaytherapies.com.au/group-therapy-programs/.
