Community Engagement Group

Hailey Richards SLP with Speech Language Network

The Community Engagement Group is designed to support adults with exceptionalities improve their communication and pragmatic language skills. Pragmatic language skills are vital for communicating our personal thoughts, ideas and feelings. Adults with difficulties in this area often misinterpret other peoples’ communicative intent and may have difficulty responding appropriately either verbally or non-verbally. The group atmosphere allows participants to learn and practice these skills in a safe environment. The goals of the group are to help build self-confidence, improve relationships with family/friends/co-workers and to help members make stronger connections within their community. 

DATES:

  • Coming January 2022…
