Therapies 4 Kids now offers social play and pragmatic groups. These groups are designed to give children and adolescents who have social deficits the skills to develop age appropriate social skills, improve communication and language, create meaningful relationships, and increase play and leisure skills. Children and adolescents will be able to share ideas, knowledge, and improve their social behaviors and communication skills. Groups are formed according to the child's age, strengths, interests, and abilities.
Social and Pragmatic groups allow participants to practice a variety of skills such as initiating and maintaining a conversation, negotiating and weighing out solutions, cooperating with different opinions while learning through observation and interacting within age appropriate activities. These groups allow participants to set and complete goals; giving children and adolescents a sense of accomplishment and self-worth. These groups also allow children and adolescents to become more interactive with their families and contribute within their communities.
