Bringing Therapy Home offers fun, age-appropriate, interactive groups utilizing research-based curriculum.
Groups are designed for children ages 3 through 6 years old – this includes all children –typically developing children and children with needs (speech, language, fine motor, gross motor, or cognitive delays).
We utilize a visual schedule, movement, objects to represent vocabulary and concepts, visuals, step-by-step communicators, and a communication device so that all children, regardless of their developmental level, can participate.
We offer groups on Friday mornings and Friday afternoons. Each class is 120 minutes and occur for 11 weeks.
Groups begin June 1, 2018 and occur every Friday through August 10, 2018.
We offer a groups in the morning and a group in the afternoon. Our morning session is from 9:00-11:00 and our afternoon session is 12:00-2:00.
The total cost for the 11 week session is $495. Missed classes are not reimbursed. Once classes begin, refunds are not issued.
Snacks are provided for and dietary restrictions are honored.
Two weeks prior to the start of the group, you will be contacted by one of the facilitators to discuss your child’s strengths and specific needs of your child. This information will be utilized to plan and develop the activities used for the group sessions. You do not need to receive current services from Bringing Therapy Home to register for the group classes. Group classes are open to the community.
The group sessions are led by Marena Mitchell, a speech-language pathologist, Sarah Eller, an
occupational therapist, Michelle Sindorf, an occupational therapist, and Emilyjane Eichman, a music therapist.
If your child has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or receives services from an outside provider, please let us know what your child's goals are and we can embed the goals into the group activities.
In our Summer 2018 Friday group, your child will develop and expand on their social skills, specifically resolving conflict and engaging in back and forth interactions with others.
Your child will participate in role playing, working together with partners, and individual tasks to have an opportunity to improve their ability to use the strategy targeted for the week. Skills may include looking toward the person talking to you, turn-taking, using words to describe feelings, sharing, using an appropriate volume level, responding to unexpected events, appropriate behavior when with others, defending possessions appropriately, asking questions to peers, answering questions, commenting, expressing thoughts, and joining peers already playing.
Stations often include specific toys that will elicit the targeted skill (e.g. saying, "I don't like that" when a friend takes a toy they were playing with). The children will have the opportunity to use the skill in a small group setting, having numerous opportunities to use the targeted skill.
