Pop & Top Groups

Pop & Top Groups from SpeechEase Speech Therapy

By: SpeechEase Speech Therapy  01-Jun-2016
Keywords: Speech Pathology, Early Learning, Social Skills

Techniques and skills are provided to parents for practical application in everyday situations. All groups are based on the unique FOCUS™ system. FOCUS stands for:
Focus: Thinking about techniques and milestones
Observe: Observe what your child is doing and what they need help with
Communicate: Social and expresssive language skills and emotional resilience
Understanding: Understanding language and concepts
Speech: Practicing making sounds and combining sounds

These groups were developed by Dr Sandra McMahon (Clinical Speech Pathologist and Researcher) based on state of the art and current research and literature for developing language in children and setting children up for academic success.

Pop is a Zany character that brings children’s imagination alive and acts as a learning anchor (e.g. "I learnt that at Pop’s"). He has a magical top that “brings” children the themes and ideas for the group session. Children are always asking “Can we go and see Pop”?

Several Groups are available that target various stages of development ... from 6 months old to early primary school age. This modular approach helps to formalise the goals of each stage of development and also ensures that each program remains well structured.

SpeechEase offers 3 different Pop & Top groups which run for 10 weeks each during the school
term. These groups are:
-Babies Talk Too
-Later Talker
-Talking Together - School Readiness

Numbers are limited per group to ensure your child gets some individual attention.
