Social Skills Playgroups
Social Skills Playgroups are organized based on age, language abilities, play skills and social pragmatic development to make sure instruction and goals fit each child. Sessions are theme-based and incorporate play, movement and language to target social skills across a variety of activities and domains. Playgroups are kept small to provide enough individualized attention and to promote peer-peer interactions. Depending on group size, additional adult support is utilized as necessary, and may be provided by an additional speech language pathologist, an occupational therapist or education specialist.
Individual Speech & Language Therapy -- Speech & Language Evaluations
Individual speech and language therapy sessions for children ages birth through 16 years for a variety of speech and language impairments including: Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Delays, Language Delays, Motor-Speech Disorders, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), Receptive & Expressive Language Impairments, Pragmatic Language Impairment, Sensory Integration Disorders, Emotional and Behavioral Disorders and Auditory Processing Disorders.
Facilitated Playdates & Sibling Skills
Facilitated playdates take place in your home or the home of your child’s peer. These sessions are less structured than a social skills group and are geared towards helping your child navigate play and socialize in a more natural setting. Sibling skills sessions can take place in your home or in the office, and are focused on helping siblings interact with each other in socially and age-appropriate ways. Sibling skills sessions also help parents support interactive play and engagement between their children. Both facilitated playdates and sibling skills sessions can occur weekly, or on a less consistent basis.
