Group therapy allows children to learn and practice skills with their peers in a safe and controlled environment. This is especially beneficial because children often learn skills in a therapy room but have difficulty performing those skills with other people or in outside settings. Group therapy allows children the opportunity to generalize skills learned in therapy with a variety of people, which in turn encourages mastery of skills. Within a group, children can experience emotional support, understanding, and encouragement from one another. 

Types of Groups Available:

  • Social Language/ Pragmatic- Facilitates social interactions amongst children to enhance each child's ability to initiate, respond, and maintain conversation with peers as well as create friendships.
  • Feeding- Provides a social model of desired behavior when eating.  Parents may observe the session and receive education on therapy strategies to use at home.
  • Stuttering- Provides emotional support while learning strategies to modify stuttering and enhance fluent speech.  Skills are practiced with a peer to promote the carry over and mastery of skills.  Parents are encouraged to participate.   
  • Handwriting- provides children with the opportunity to learn and practice letter and sentence formation alongside their peers in a fun and supportive environment.
  • Preschool Language- Engages young children in group play based activities to improve receptive and expressive language skills.
