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

P.B. a grateful mom!

On my search to help my son I had good experiences and not so good ones. But finding InterPlay has been a blessing in the skies. Dr. Pilar and her team are truly the best professionals in the area. Their charisma and compassion, professionalism, knowledge, integrity and quality of care are what every parent (who is struggling with their child) needs. They didn't only help my beautiful boy but my family as a whole. Their understanding of sensory integration and their playful approach to treatment engaged my son and they were able to get out the best of him. In every session they gave their heart and he gave them his best. It just took a couple months for all of us to see the benefits of the treatment. Today, I am glad to say that our family is at peace with our situation, knowing that hard work (as we are guided by the experts at InterPlay) will lead us to the right path ...
