Kidz Club is a social skills group designed for 3 to 5 year olds who need support in a small, structured, play environment. They develop the language and play skills needed to interact effectively with same age peers. The group focuses on the development of social skills in age appropriate, natural contexts. Each group is co-led by an occupational therapist and special education teacher. The group meets in classrooms, playgrounds, the bike yard and the gym at the Alcott School Crane Road location.
The structured small group classes include sensory based activities, group motor games, snack and review of the “social rules.”
Kidz Club goals include:
Reading social cues
Improving peer interaction
Parents are an important part of Kidz Club. They are encouraged to observe through our one way mirrors and join the Parent Group which meets during the Kidz Club session.
