Therapeutic Play Groups

Each group program is an hour session, once a week, for 8 weeks. Parents receive a brief summary after each visit and a progress report at mid- and end of session. Theraplay’s therapeutic play groups are available to all children at any stage of development. However, because there is a therapeutic focus to each session, we require a physician’s prescription in order to register for the group.

The group will also provide the opportunity for children to use targeted words to improve grammar and social skills.
