Groups/Camps

Children benefit from taking part in small groups that encourage participation, imagination, creativity, learning through role playing, and provides opportunities for observation of other children.

Participants in our therapeutic groups benefit beyond the usual advantages of a small group since they are led by trained therapists.

 

Additional Benefits Include:

  • regulating activity levels
  • implementing tools for improved focus
  • gaining strategies for emotional management
  • learning ways to cooperate and navigate conflicts
  • and, developing a sense of belonging

In-Person

Social Skills
Our social skill programs are designed to promote success and confidence across routines and situations commonly encountered by children. The child learns strategies to improve participation during home, academic, and play situations while in a small group, led by a trained therapist.

Each session incorporates activities to promote socialization, emotional regulation, connection, and problem-solving in an interactive and supportive environment. Additionally, children gain understanding into how their actions can create strong connections or damage their relationships. Handouts, tips, and reproducible tools are provided to reinforce the learning objectives.

Executive Function
Executive Functioning skills allow us to plan, focus, remember, and carryout multiple tasks. The frontal lobe of the brain is the primary area responsible for these processes. It must be able to receive information, process and filter that information, prioritize tasks, and achieve goals, all while maintaining emotional and impulse control.

Children are not born with executive function skills but rather develop them overtime through the support of strong, positive relationships and learning opportunities. There are a variety of factors that influence a child’s ability to develop their skills. Chronic stress can disrupt the brain’s architecture and impair the development of executive functioning abilities.

Our executive function groups focus on the areas needed for learning, development, and independence in ADL tasks. The three main areas of emphasis include working memory, mental flexibility, and self-control. As the child’s capabilities expand, they become increasingly self-sufficient and able to make thoughtful and healthy choices for themselves.

Handwriting
Handwriting is more than just drawing shapes, letters, or numbers onto paper. It is a complex activity that incorporates sensory, postural, fine motor, and visual skills.

Our handwriting groups incorporate sensory-rich activities that promote postural activation, fine and visual motor skill refinement, to establish the skills necessary for successful handwriting. Therapists incorporate evidence-based theories including the Handwriting Without Tears® curriculum for efficient letter formation, sizing, and spacing.
Children participating in the handwriting groups are given activities for home and repetition of the activities are necessary for improved outcomes.

Feeding
Integration Station offers two feeding groups, Food Fun for Tots! and Becoming A Food Scientist. Both groups follow the principles of the SOS Approach to Feeding which guides the child through food exploration and for more enjoyable mealtimes and expansion on tolerated foods.

Food Fun for Tots! is a multisensory feeding group for created for children 4-6 years of age and uses concepts of color, shape, smell, and feel to promote acceptance.

Becoming a Food Scientist is developed for children 6-10 years of age and engages children in a variety of food experiments. Children will learn about science in an edible and tasty way!
