GROUP THERAPY SERVICES
The importance of interacting and engaging appropriately with others cannot be understated. Children can struggle with unstructured time associated with recess, play dates, birthday parties and social/family gatherings. Teaching the tools and strategies needed to initiate and sustain positive social interactions are the cornerstone to social success. These skills do not come easily to many children but, given a structured model, including the social thinking curriculum (Michelle Garcia Winner), along with opportunities to practice across settings, they can be learned. When grouped with an appropriate peer group, skills and strategies are taught and practiced in a fun and engaging way.
