Play With Friends : Therapeutic Social Participation Group

The Therapeutic Social Participation Group is a social skills program designed to provide children with the tools, strategies, and therapeutic intervention necessary to establish meaningful experiences and interactions with their peers.

The group helps children build social readiness, pragmatic and problem-solving skills as well as coping skills for anger and emotion regulation. Children also learn strategies to stay focused, follow directions in a group environment, and make and maintain friendships through games, role-plays, arts and crafts, and other fun activities.

The Social Participation Group meets weekly in a 6 week session. It takes place in one of our two locations and may include community outreach when the group allows it.

We accept children between 5 and 10 years old who want to form meaningful friendships. Depending on the needs of the group we have a 6:1 or a 8:2 child to staff ratio. Groups are broken down according to chronological and developmental ages.

Testimonials

MB & BB
Words cannot even begin to describe how very grateful and pleased we were with Dr. Pilar Saa and her professional staff of Occupational Therapists. We had an appointment for an initial evaluation with Dr. Saa scheduled a few weeks in the future for when she returned from being out of the country, but we called her office as our 3 year-old son was in some immediate distress and she squeezed us in before she left. We have never forgotten that!! Our son was able to start his OT immediately with the most wonderful, warm, kind, compassionate therapist that we all grew to love. He actually looked forward to his appointments at the play-gym. We are happy to report that our son is thriving and doing wonderfully. We cannot thank Dr. Saa and her staff enough for being such a special part of our "village". They held our hands through every step of the way, educated us and guided us as we navigated this scary thing called "Sensory Processing Disorder". We highly recommend Dr. Pilar Saa and her staff at InterPlay!!!!
