Milton Therapy and Learning Centre is a family-centred practice providing a range of services to Milton, Ulladulla and surrounding areas. Owned and operated by Speech Pathologist, Kate Kinch, Milton TLC also offers Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Art Therapy, Music Therapy and Keyworker services.
Milton TLC has demonstrated a clear commitment to Social and Emotional Learning. We were impressed with their passion and commitment, and we are looking forward to continuing to work with their team to deliver their program to children during 2020.
How The Best of Friends® program will be implemented at Milton TLC
The first 10-week group of The Best of Friends® program for 2020 will take place in Term 1 and will be closely supported by our team of facilitators. Each participant receives a copy of the exclusive workbook developed by Quirky Kid, while facilitators and parents have access to an extensive range of information, manuals and regular supervision as required.
To ensure adequate evaluation, each individual child and group complete pre- and post- psychometric testing of their social and emotional skills to measure the outcome of the intervention. Evaluation and monitoring is an important component of The Best of Friends® program.
We look forward to working closely with Milton TLC!
