We’re back in the clinic!

Join us for our 2 - to 3 - year-old play group, designed to develop communication, language, and social skills. Waiting, turn-taking, following directions, and transitions are incorporated into preschool activities, like circle time, art, and pretend play. Our Speech-Language Pathologist will incorporate monthly themes to enhance vocabulary development, knowledge of early basic concepts, and pre-literacy skills.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a third-wave behavioral psychotherapy that has been shown to be effective in the treatment of a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, psychosis and chronic pain.  ACT integrates mindfulness skills with values-guided living. It helps clients develop a compassionate relationship to painful thoughts and feelings versus attempting to avoid or control them.  This shift allows clients to focus instead on clarifying personal values and using that knowledge to take action that promotes a rich, meaningful life.

Join our Speech-Language Pathologist for a creative, hands-on theater experience. Table readings, script writing, stage cuing, and set design will be incorporated into this 8-week group. Thespians will work on fluent oral reading, articulation, story analysis, social cues, and writing.

At the end of the 8 weeks, our all camp-inspired, written, and produced play will be shared with families.
