Autism Early School Preparation Group
HELPING KIDS GET READY FOR SCHOOL
Autism presents a spectrum of learning challenges at school. Maybe your child is struggling in kindergarten or almost but not quite ready for daycare. That’s why we created the Early Learners Group — an alternative program to help children get ready for their next academic milestones.
Here, your little learner will join a structured, small group classroom environment where we use evidence-based methodologies to promote skills acquisition and enhance your child’s individual therapy. Our goal matches yours: to get your child ready to more fully participate in future outside social settings — and especially at school.
Our individualized approach features social integration and more:
- Group therapy similar to what schools offer
- School preparation and an emphasis on learning-to-learn skills
- Planned transitions to school programs — helping your child through every step required to qualify for full-time school placement
- Time blocks for Lunch Bunch, Social Group and Individual Therapy
We are C’s teachers and we wanted you to know how excited we are to be working with your therapists. Today we saw an immediate connection between C and [another student] J! C joined our circle willingly as he sat with J. We could see that he was paying attention more to what was going on during this large group time. C did not cry or scream when J made suggestions during free play. Transitions were a little smoother. It was amazing to us that J was able to reach C so easily having never even met him. We are really looking forward to the coming weeks and learning more how to best meet C’s needs.via Pauline S.
