Children & Adolescents

9-10:30am

Children & Adolescents

This fun, play-based group is designed for 2- to 3-year-old children who need support to develop language, play, and social skills. Waiting, turn-taking, following directions, and clean up are performed in a classroom setting with a low therapist to child ratio. This provides opportunities for children to learn and practice skills needed for daily preschool routines, like circle time, snack, art, and play. Monthly themes are used to enhance vocabulary development in early basic concepts and pre-literacy skills.
