Did you know participating in a book club can be fun and therapeutic?

Book clubs are a unique approach that can support participant’s personal and therapy goals.  This can include cognitive skills such as attention, memory and executive function skills as well as addressing psychological components including social communication skills, pragmatic skills, confidence, and the ability to cope with deficits. Improvement in these skills have been shown to positively impact quality of life including socialization, self-expression, learning and leisure 

 

Book clubs can provide a supportive environment without being a support group.  They can assist with the transition from therapy to community, provides an environment to assist with generalization of trained skills and strategies and provide a fun and social activity with others.

 

Participants should be able to read (or listen on audiobook) to 50-60 pages a week and be able to answer questions related to the reading.

 

Attendance to all classes is recommended as each week will build on from the last.
