Learn Talk Play

A social skills focused small group for children with social communication and emotional regulation needs.

So much of communication has little to do with words and everything to do with an understanding of subtle social skills. This program is for children who need help learning those social skills. Generalizing speech and occupational therapy skills into a natural setting with peers is the focus of this social skills group.

Learn Talk Play is designed for children who have autism or other social skills needs, by focusing on relationships, emotions and social communication. Program activities, designed for ages four to eleven, are similar to those in typical preschools or classrooms. Structured food learning opportunities and frequent sensory motor breaks are an important part of the day.

Learn Talk Play pairs nicely with school-based or private programs. Children learn how to:

  • play with other children
  • think about others
  • follow a group plan and fully participate
  • cope with the unexpected
  • play appropriately with toys and games
  • express emotions in a healthy way

Children in Learn Talk Play receive speech-language and occupational therapies in a preschool or group setting. Children will generalize communication, sensory and emotional regulation skills to activities with peers.
