AboutPlay has been a calm to our storm.Fielding
Group therapy services are offered throughout the year at AboutPlay, and are always led by a therapist. We help to create, build on, and scaffold social interactions, establish comfort being in a group, improve sensory processing skills, improve self-regulation skills, and more.
We have a range of fun themes, and currently serve ages 5-10. We have a very low child to adult ratio for support as needed, usually averaging 3:1 and sometimes 2:1.
Pricing for the group is $60/session for the weekly groups, and $100 for the therapeutic group hikes. Forms are provided with group therapy codes for insurance reimbursement.
5 Week Group Cost $300
6 Week Group Cost $360
8 Week Group Cost $480
Hiking Group Cost $100

Your child will learn about their seven senses in this fun and interactive group–the extra senses being our sense of position (proprioception) and our sense of balance (vestibular). Your child will learn about and expand on the importance of each sense in order to develop self-regulation skills, which greatly help with emotional regulation.
Did you know that engaging in arts and crafting is an excellent way to develop self regulation tools? Your child will get the opportunity to create and take home a variety of crafts in this fun and engaging group, first warming up their body and mind in the sensory gym. For crafting enthusiasts and novels!
