Musical Bugs

Our musical communication groups are designed to help young children develop vocabulary and communication skills independently. These highly interactive sessions focus on nurturing pre-verbal communication skills.
These sessions also help develop early social skills such as turn taking, The activities are set up to engage young children in a fun and structured environment, therefore incorporating a range of games, songs and musical movement into the sessions.

Transition Groups

Making the leap from primary to secondary school can be daunting for some children, particularly those with communication difficulties. To prepare children for what’s ahead, ChatterBug offers a Transition Group.

Developed by our SLTs and supported by Aphasic, this 5-day programme addresses pupils’ and parents’ concerns and looks to overcome these issues in a positive manner. The programme is designed to give children confidence as they move into secondary school as well as providing pupils with new skills, such as reading a timetable, problem solving, social skills and managing bullying.
