Are you looking for a group where your child makes connections with other kids?
Are you looking for a group where your child's strengths are utilized to develop critical social skills?
Are you looking for a group where your child is embraced for exactly who they are?
Welcome to Bringing Therapy Home's social language groups!
During elementary groups, kids enter Bringing Therapy Home and engage in activities that have been specifically designed to enhance and develop skills, such as:
Working together for a common goal Taking turns by showing interest and making comments Making decisions Creating a plan Helping each other accomplish a task by problem solving Responding to unexpected events
As kids enter Bringing Therapy Home, they are given a choice of where they want to begin. Do you want to start in the gross motor room, the social-language room, the fine motor/constructive play room, the sensory room, or the language and literacy room?
Kids will learn how we work better as a group than we do alone. We are a community and we see the value in each other.
Kids work in teams of 3-4 to complete a variety of tasks. Each week, the kids rotate between 3 rooms (the gross motor room, the social-language room, the fine motor/constructive play room, the sensory room, or the language and literacy room) while engaging in each activity for 30 minutes.
Maybe they create a maze together or play prediction activities. Maybe they build structures using fine motor manipulatives. Maybe they create an obstacle course or have a talk show.
We utilize a visual schedule, movement, objects to represent vocabulary and concepts, visuals, and a communication device so that all children, regardless of their developmental level, can participate.
Our elementary group sessions are led by: Emilyjane Eichman (music therapist) Samantha Pittman (Speech-Language Pathologist) Emma Heinen (Speech-Language Pathologist) Lauren Spector (Occupational Therapy Student)
The total cost for the 8 week group session is $440. Missed classes are not reimbursed. Once classes begin, refunds are not issued.
If this is your child's first time attending a group at Bringing Therapy Home, 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.
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.
