This group utilizes the Social Thinking approach to help kids better understand peer interactions and what is expected of them within social settings. We also use The Zones of Regulation help kids better understand what they are feeling and how that affects not only themselves but others around them. New groups are always forming.
Step Forward Therapy offers group feeding therapy for children 2 years old and up. We utilize the S.O.S approach to feeding. This group is for children that have been evaluated and found to have specific feeding problems which would benefit from the SOS (Sequential, Oral, Sensory) approach to feeding. The SOS approach uses sequential hierarches and techniques to address and move towards improving feeding issues. The atmosphere is aimed at being relaxed and inviting and group feeding therapy allows each child to move at their own pace while facilitating improvement of their own feeding difficulties as well as their peers.
