Unsure How to Help Them Learn More in Their Early Grade Levels?

As a parent, you may even:

Be lost with the lack of feedback, not sure if they are doing okay for their age.

Not know what to do next, especially when you see your child frustrated with every lesson.

Feel like you’re struggling alone, looking for people to turn to with the same concerns.

Apheleia’s group therapy program introduces proper literacy learning techniques to help your child understand and express more and become more insightful and effective learners.

Why is Literacy is a Must-Have Skill for Early Learning

Imagine opening a book only to found out that you can’t understand anything.

The Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) released their 2022 Right to Read inquiry report, highlighting the shortcomings of Ontario’s public education system in teaching literacy.

By not using evidence-based approaches, the education system lacked a focus on crucial literacy skills. Apheleia’s program helps fill this learning gap.

If your child can’t understand what they read and can’t express themselves while studying, they will be demotivated to learn from any subject, not just English class.

Make an impact that will last a lifetime.

Literacy skills also go beyond the classroom and can affect your child’s adult life, too.

With these skills from the get-go, it will be easier for them to understand complex ideas, build strong relationships, and perform well at work. 

Looking at the big picture, starting now will only make things better.

Literacy Group Therapy Journey - Apheleia Speech

In group therapy, your child won’t have to go through the literacy journey alone.

Apheleia’s group therapy program teaches literacy through collaborative work and learning.

Their speech therapist will lead a supportive environment while addressing needs together. Some possible components of the therapy may include:

rhyming, blending, and segmenting sounds (phonemic awareness)

discussing stories and other reading materials (comprehension and vocabulary building)

practicing handwriting, spelling, and sentence construction (writing)

Each group is unique, so the actual techniques used in sessions will depend on the dynamics and individual needs of the children.

12 Comprehensive Group Sessions, For Only $600

The group will meet online twice a week for 6 weeks. As part of the program, your child will also get:

an individual assessment at the start and the end of the program
1 group summary document (sent to all group members)
1 personalized summary document (sent specifically to you, with actionable recommendations you can do at home)
a personalized certificate of completion

With 12 focused sessions, your child will have the opportunity to learn alongside a supportive group of peers, while receiving guidance and support from our licensed speech-language pathologist.
