Interactive play groups formulated for children five years and younger that have limited social experience and/or communicative skills. These play groups function as the bridge between parallel play and interactive socialization. The purpose of playgroups is to provide closely monitored social experiences that develop communication skills, as well as enhance sensory motor performance. Children are paired with peers and their treating speech therapists and occupational therapists in a relaxed environment. Purposeful, motor-building, social activities are presented within the playgroup. Activities are adapted to meet each child’s independent needs. During our playgroups we include various types of activities such as imaginative play, arts and crafts, singing, music, board games and interactive physical play in our gym. Obstacles courses, ball play and dance are a few of our favorite activities. Throughout the playgroup the therapist incorporates social communication as well as sensory and motor performance tasks.
