Our Saturday Play Groups programs combine the award-winning Integrated Play Groups®, Friend 2 Friend Autism Demystification®, and SCERTS® models. Our programs focus on the development of the social, communication, emotional regulation and peer play competencies of all the children participating in the programs.
Saturday Play Groups
programs are offered once per week in 60-minute sessions, Saturdays from September to June each year for children ages 5 to 16. The sessions consist of small stable groups of children, 2 novice players (children with autism or related needs) and 2-3 expert players (typically developing peers). Under the guidance of highly trained professionals, each session is designed to meet the social, communication and play needs of the novice and expert players as they participate in mutually engaging weekly play themes and activities.
