Preschool II Group (ages 2 - 4)                                                             Monday and Wednesday 9:00 - 11:00

This group is designed for children with difficulties in play skills, language skills, sensory/emotional regulation skills, social skills and more.  These children are already familiar with a classroom setting; however, still may need help with the classroom rules (i.e., sitting, walking in a line, etc.). This group is focused on increasing language (expressive and receptive), play skills, social communication skills, emotional regulation skills, and more with both peers and adults through the use of the SCERTS® Model (by Prizant, Wetherby, Rubin, Laurent, and Rydell) and elements of Social Thinking® (by Michelle Garcia Winner).  This group’s schedule may include: gym time, circle time, play times, snack time, music time, and more.  The Preschool II Group is designed to help prepare your child for a typical structured preschool or pre-k program.  This group has a classroom ratio of 1 speech pathologist or speech pathology assistant to 2 kids.  Spaces limited to 6 children.  (34 sessions)

Pre-K Group (ages 4 – 6)                                                                                  Monday and Wednesday 9:00-11:00

This group is designed for children with difficulties in play skills, language skills, sensory/emotional regulation skills, social skills, and more.  These children are already familiar with a classroom setting and require minimal to no help with these skills. This group is focused on increasing language skills (expressive and receptive), play skills, social communication skills, emotional regulation skills, Theory of Mind skills, perspective taking skills, academic skills, and more with both peers and adults through the use of the SCERTS® Model (by Prizant, Wetherby, Rubin, Laurent, and Rydell) and elements of Social Thinking® (by Michelle Garcia Winner).  This group’s schedule may include: gym time, circle time, play times, snack time, music time, and more.  This group will also have an emphasis on pre-literacy skills, pre-writing skills, and early math concepts to help prepare the children for pre-k or kindergarten.  This group has a classroom ratio of 1 speech pathologist or speech pathology assistant to 4 kids.  Spaces limited to 6 children.  (34 sessions)

 Social Skills Group

These groups focus on building and sustaining relationships by increasing socialization skills (within structured play, unstructured play, conversation, and more) as well as language within a variety of child-centered socialization activities.  Within these groups we also focus on increasing our Theory of Mind skills through a variety of approaches including: SCERTS©, concepts taken from Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Detective©, Superflex©, and more.  These groups have a total of 9 kids in each group. The ratios change based on the group’s need which could range anywhere from 1 speech pathology assistant or speech pathologist to 3 kids TO 1 speech pathology assistant or speech pathologist to 9 kids.
