SCHOOL HOLIDAYS TEXT WRITING PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS IN YEARS 4-6
Understanding and using text and developing good written language skills are essential for learning in a classroom. This program is ideal for students in Years 4-6 to help them:
• understand text types
• use text types
• complete written language tasks
We deliver support in a small group (3-4 students) to teach them how to plan, organise and edit their writing. Sessions will be completed on site at Signs and Sounds in Marrickville.
Your child does NOT have to be a current client of Signs and Sounds. Sessions will be conducted for 1 hour each day from Tuesday – Friday of the first week of the April school holidays (time of sessions to be confirmed).
Cost = $50-$60 per session (Total program fee = $200-$240) depending on the amount of interest and size of the groups.
Please note that Medicare, private health and third party funding (such as NDIS) may be claimed for these sessions and that the cost does not include any reports or individual assessments.
If you would like to register your interest, please email your child’s name and grade by the 18th of March 2018 to: email@example.com
We’re here to help!

For young people and adults who stutter, it can be hard to speak up, make new friends, speak on the telephone, speak in loud environments and speak in group situations. Speech pathologists can help to manage the stuttering using a speech restructuring program. Here at Signs and Sounds, Laura, one of our speech pathologists, can help you learn to speak in a slightly different way so that you can learn to manage your stutter. Phone or email us if you have any questions!
