PlayPals: Therapy Directed Pre-K Preparation

Play Pals is a therapeutic group program for children ages 1.5 to 3 years or 4 to 5 years who are at risk of developmental delays or with identified disorders that impede their successful participation in preschool programs.

Children will have support from a learning specialist, occupational therapist, and speech and language pathologist.

Play Pals uses a play based intervention approach with a small adult to child ratio to prepare children for preschool and to provide parent training for a family-centered approach.

This small group program concentrates on learning through play and discovery and every month will have a theme that will tie into the daily activities.

Testimonials

A.A.

I highly recommend Interplay. This therapy has really made a difference for my baby. Not only is he challenged to achieve his goals/milestones, but these movements are camouflaged into play which in turn is therapeutic for him even when he is a cheater pants . Pilar is exceptional at her craft along with her associates. If you are looking for an outlet to address any concerns you have for your child in a very effective way Michelle in the front will accommodate your concerns. Thank you ladies for all you do!!
