A group is considered three or more children per therapist. Children are matched with appropriate peers based on identified family’s goals and the children’s needs, strengths, interests, body organization and what their language level is so that optimal interactions can be facilitated.  Multi-disciplinary professionals may participate to incorporate appropriate supports and enhance skill development.  While our groups incorporate specific skills, many of them will have a social component to them as well.  However some of the groups will not work on social skills, but a group environment can be used as a motivational strategy.
