Summer Groups are filling up! Join us....
LIttle Buddies Group 4-5 year olds Tuesdays 2-3pm
Get ready for school next year! This group mimics what children will see in the classroom but with the support of an occupational therapist and a speech pathologist. Skills we work on: "me" plans versus "we" plans, sharing, identifying emotions, turntaking, practicing empathy. This is a great social skills group for kids in preschool, young 5s and beginning kindergarten. Each week will have a fun and engaging theme to help guide the play and learning.
ABC's Group 5-6 year olds Wednesdays 10-11:30am
This the group to target handwriting skills, letter sequencing, reading skills and articulation for those that need it. This is a group for kids that may need speech therapy to help them be better understood by their peers. We use the "Handwriting without Tears" program for handwriting and Lindamood Bell techniques for reading and comprehension. This group is led by one speech pathologist and an occupational therapist that know that handwriting and reading can be tough so they make it fun!
Friday night, let's party! 7-8 year old boys Fridays 5:30-6:30pm
This group is a social skills group (but we don't tell them that) to help boys in 1st and 2nd grade. This is for kids that may need extra support in the areas of emotional development, social development, waiting your turn, learning about each other, trying new skills, being flexible. This group uses the technique "Super Flex". This is led by an occupational therapist and a speech pathologist.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is this covered by insurance? We accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and BCN PPO/HMO. We try to get your child covered by your insurance since the groups are led by in network therapists. You are however responsible for copays, deductibles and if insurance does not cover. The private pay out of pocket rate per session is $70. What if these times don't work for me? Please still contact us. We keep a list of interested families so we can help group kids together. Are there other groups? Let us know what you're looking for and we will try to match up other kids that would be a good fit. What is the ratio? We keep the groups to 5-6 kids so we are filling up very quickly. We like to have a 3:1 ratio so that our clinicians can have time working on individual needs. Not sure, can I try it out? Absolutely! We offer a $20 screener to see if your child is a good match and if we can help your child in the way that they will make the most summer progress. Contact Kaitlin to schedule your screener. What if we have vacation planned? No worries! Let us know in advance. We understand vacation plans. We do ask that you commit to coming to 8 of the 10-11 sessions this summer. I'm interested!
