STAR Center offers groups for children, siblings and parents. These small groups are generally planned for children who are in or have participated in a complete intensive therapy program, but who still may have issues related to social participation. Sometimes children complete therapy in small groups. Other times inidivdual and group therapy can be concurrent.
Small groups (2 to 4 children) are a perfect transition for children who have completed individual therapy but are not yet ready to take on the YMCA! Children who have traveled to STAR center from afar may also wish to participate in groups if our groups that are scheduled are appropriate for the particular individual. Individual Therapy during either the morning or afternoon, and Group Therapy during the other part of the day can sometimes be arranged, depending on the groups that are currently in process.
We plan our groups around the children. We find a set of children with similar needs and if timing permits we group the children together to provide socially appropriate groups.
