What are the benefits of group sessions?

Group therapy sessions for children are a great way to reinforce skills through playful interactions with peers during unstructured, sensory activities in order to gain practice in realistic play scenarios.

Groups are scheduled on an as needed basis when there is an interest or need to progress clients. Clients are grouped based on similar age range, skill-set, and goals. 

The focus of groups include:
