Staten Island Peer Socialization & Interaction
The Peer Socialization Groups, here at The Sensory Studio, are a terrific way for your child to engage in peer interaction, learn appropriateness in communication and develop new friendships. All peer groups are directed by a Speech Language Pathologist, an Occupational Therapist, Social Worker or Licensed Special Educator.
The first step in joining a Peer Group at The Sensory Studio is to schedule an Intake Appointment. In that appointment, we will conduct a brief parent interview, a communication screening and work together to determine which specific group will be best for your child.
Common Interest Groups
All Peer Groups are theme based and centered on a common interest of the group. Social skills are taught and practiced within the sessions, although the theme of the session (science & experimentation, philanthropy, sports, etc.) guides the focus of the group, allowing for natural relationships to develop within it. This has been one of our most successful services offered!
