Talking Matters Group Programs
Talking Matters offer a range of innovative programs that support and extend the standard clinical therapy sessions. As some skills are learned or consolidated best in a group environment, we offer a range of exciting group options for intensive intervention each school holiday period. Groups help children learn from each other, in a motivating and highly relevant manner. Information about a range of programs offered at Talking Matters is provided below.
Intensive Group Programs
Information for each of our intensive group programs are available below and you can apply for inclusion in these groups below now! Numbers for these groups are limited and places are offered to children based on suitability following completion of the registration process.

Children must be available to attend all sessions to enrol. Session times can be found in the details for each of the programs.
Full details can be found in the brochures below.
Talking Matters has been supporting groups for over 6 years, our programs have evolved over the years
- Groups now run for longer periods over 2-3 days rather than over 6 days to make it easier for families to attend
- Groups now look more holistically at skills through including a number of clinicians and activity focuses
- Families are now able to leave the office once children have been collected for groups
Missed sessions will need to be funded, as we are unable to cover the costs of providing the program unless all children are in attendance for every session.
