The goal of this 8-week group is to provide sensory experiences for 3-5 year olds that meet children where they are at developmentally, while providing social opportunities with peers. This group is facilitated by two experienced therapists who are well versed in regulation and helping children feel comfortable engaging with others! Each week we explore a different sense to encourage learning and development. Personalized feedback and materials will be provided for the family so carryover can take place at home, school, and in other group/social settings.
