Let’s face it – if kids don’t have some fun in the group, they aren’t going to get the maximum benefit! From the moment you enter the “Clubhouse”, you and your child will feel the difference. From the Clubhouse Café to our exciting gym, it’s all designed with kids in mind. But don’t let the environment fool you – we’re serious about our therapy and outcomes and secure only highly qualified staff to be on the Clubhouse Team.
Feeding “The Snack Pack” Group
There are picky eaters, and then there are PICKY EATERS!! Parents are often distressed by finicky eating, especially when it starts to interfere with nutrition. Sometimes, feeding problems are the result of sensory or motor-based feeding issues. This group meets in our bright and cheerful “Clubhouse Café,” where Speech Pathologists and/or Occupational Therapists maximize the positive influence of peers to help children develop all new eating habits.
The Social Think Tanks (Groups for ages 5-18)
This social communication program is based on the awesome work of Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking. Designed for children and adolescents who are experiencing difficulty with interpersonal communication with peers. The kids are helped to develop important social and “friendship” skills, such as turn taking and reciprocity, understanding the perspective of others, body language recognition, topic maintenance and other skills which lead to greater success in social language situations.
Speech/Language Pathologists are highly trained to diagnose and treat many of the fundamental difficulties that result in reading difficulties. “Practice” alone does not result in improvement when children are struggling due to an underlying deficit in phonology or language. We take off where the regular classroom curriculum ends and dig deeper into the root cause – and cure – of the reading disorder. Free screenings are provided.
