Chatterbox Club

A family social occasion providing the opportunity for children to meet with others of a similar age for group speech therapy. Sessions are delivered by qualified speech and language therapists who have specialist training in the specific communication needs of people who have Down’s syndrome. If you do not enroll for the SLT sessions, you are welcome to join us for all the other activities, coffee and a chat. Feel free to pop a donation in the box at the refreshments counter towards the cost of running the club, which includes arts and craft activities provided by Venture Arts (http://www.venturearts.org) and yoga. Teachers and TAs welcome – the activities modeled in these sessions are suitable to be used in educational settings.

“It’s nice to come to a group that you feel you can relax with your child and their siblings because they are totally accepted and their challenges are warmly welcomed. The fact that you can have a drink, delicious snacks, share fun with other families plus help your children, do activities, crafts, play with great toys, plus do yoga, signing and also have access to excellent speech therapists is priceless. Finally, having the opportunity to attend training events is invaluable. Supports us in life and has been totally amazing!”
