Year 6 Transition Group

Getting ready for high school can be daunting for any young person, especially those with communication differences. 

Our Year 6 transition groups take place during the summer holidays and are a great opportunity for children to come together, learn more about their stammer and consider how to advocate for themselves in their new high school. 

The children have the space to explore their feelings as a group, develop strategies to feel prepared and confident, ready for their first day.  Our groups are a mixture of fun online and face to face sessions. We focus on team working, problem solving and communication in escape rooms and orienteering challenges. We also incorporate physical challenges such as rope climbing, caving and bouldering which encourage children to step out of their comfort zones and develop resilience. 

As part of this therapy package we also offer their new high school some training in how to support children with a stammer.
