Social Skills Groups
We offer social skills groups with therapists who have been trained in the social thinking methodology. Social groups offer a safe & supportive space to practice friendship & interpersonal skills. Participation in a group is typically paired with weekly or bi-weekly individual treatment sessions.
Summer Speech Therapy
Every summer we offer summer speech therapy for children who are already receiving speech therapy through an individual education plan (IEP). Summer speech allows access to a weekly, or bi-weekly therapy time without an evaluation as long as the child has a current IEP to work from.
When you come see us, you will find that we have two therapy rooms that are calm and well-appointed for both kids and adults who enjoy spending sessions playing or sitting at a table or on the floor.
