Who we are:
PEPTalk is a series of group therapy sessions that aim to empower parents to use strategies that develop their child’s communication, language and learning everyday. It is suitable for children whose families are concerned about their child’s communication and learning development, for children waiting for assessments and for those with a diagnosis of Autism and other Special Educational Needs.
PEP Talk is led by a Highly Specialised Speech and Language Therapist (SLT). Laura (SLT) is also a Qualified Teacher, Sensory Integration Therapist and Feeding Therapist with knowledge and expertise in Makaton Signing, PECS, Attention Autism, Toilet Training and Behaviour Management. Other professionals offering group sessions include an Occupational Therapist & a dually qualified Dance and Speech and Language Therapist.
What we do
An initial consultation in which we can discuss your child's needs and work together to set targets.
5 x 45 minute small group sessions with each session focusing on a different theme essential for developing communication and learning skills. There will be a maximum of 6 children in the group. Children will learn in a specialised sensory environment.
A learning profile for your child which you can share with other professionals to provide them with information on how to support your child to learn and develop.
Parents will participate in sessions alongside their children. Each session will be led by a therapist with the support of a member of Arsenal in the Community and a Therapy Assstant.
PEP Talk will empower you to use strategies to develop your child's skills everyday to support them to reach their maximum potential.
PEPTalk - Communicating through Music
In September 2019 Tiziana, a Music Therapist is leading PEPTalk - Communicating through Music.
Music has been proven to improve social interactions, language, confidence, fine motor skills, concentration, problem solving and as a therapy to help aid specific learning needs.
Children's learning and development are achieved through enjoyable music activities to develop positive relationships between everyone taking part in the group.
The group sessions with Tiziana involve singing, movement, dancing, non-verbal and verbal communication, instruments but most of all, they are fun!
