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)
WHAT IS SOCIAL THINKING?
“Social Thinking” is a term coined by Michelle Garcia Winner which describes the ability to consider your own and others’ thoughts, emotions, beliefs, intentions, knowledge, and experiences to help interpret and respond to the information in your mind through your social behavioral interactions. Basically, social thinking is the way people figure out how to ‘share space’ with others whether they are interacting or not.
Our Social Think Tanks are tailored to teach kids the “Why?” of social interactions…. not just “How” to interact and “what” to say. There is a direct relationship between maturity in social learning and the critical thinking used in classrooms, homes, playgrounds, and in the core curriculum requirements for academic learning.
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.
Speech and language set in play, with theme-based classes that focus on increasing expressive communication and sound production. Ages 2-8;
Free screenings are always available if you are unsure if your child should be evaluated. Give us a call – we’re here to help.
