Westchester Therapy Solutions is excited to offer Therapist-led Social Skills Therapy groups! One of the most important goals for all special needs children is for him/her to have a friend or make friends more easily. Our Occupational Therapists or Speech/Language Pathologists have designed our groups to encourage play skills, turn taking, sensory processing, relationship development, non-verbal awareness, listening skills and language development in a fun, stress free environment that promotes success.
After an initial intake to get to know a child and a parent questionnaire the appropriate group placement is determined with the parent as part of the team. All groups have a ratio of 1:3 (therapist to children) and could at a maximum be 2:6 (therapists to children). Social skills therapy groups are formed of children with similar ages and needs. Sessions run for 6 or 8 weeks and parents receive weekly email blasts of the activities worked on and a progress summary at the conclusion of the group.
Discounts are offered for those children already receiving services in our therapy gym.
Please contact us for more information or / and you have a group you would like to start.
