Programs we deliver

Pair Therapy

  • We offer therapy with a peer to work on social goals. This is done on a needs basis and when there is a well matched peer also looking for pair work.

Craft Group

  • This is for 3 to 5 year olds where we offer social groups in the holidays, and where the main activity is art or craft. Within these groups, the child’s individual goals are supported by the therapist.
