Thanks for showing interest in our therapy groups! We are very excited to offer a variety of groups that target sensory processing and pragmatic skills. Group placement is dependent on the child’s skill level. It is required that each child must participate in an evaluation and provide a current doctor’s prescription prior to being placed into a group to ensure the best fit. Our 15-Week fall groups will be ending the week of December 10th.
Please contact Lauren Pammer, occupational therapist, or Christen Troy, speech-language pathologist, at 708-478-5400 for additional information.
