Peer Groups and Camps


Peer groups and camps can address a variety of goals, ranging from social skills to motor skills.

Peer groups are formed on a case-by-case basis depending on the needs of individual clients. These groups are tailored to target specific developmental and social goals. Goal areas may include social, regulation, language, play, and motor needs.


We are focused on collaborative treatment and achieving goals.

Groups can be staffed by multiple therapists from various disciplines including: occupational therapists, speech therapist, social workers, physical therapist, and developmental therapists. We are happy to collaborate with outside providers to ensure optimal progress.  

With our individualized peer groups and camps, we often have the opportunity to address multiple goal areas simultaneously. Examples include: building gross motor and social skills, sensory and social skills, as well as fine motor and social skills.
