We plan to start two social skills groups on Saturday mornings, located at a new office in Windsor Terrace (19th Street and 8th Ave, Brooklyn). 1st session will be on December 1st, 2012.
We are recruiting children between the ages of 3 to 8; we work with children with and without diagnoses, such e.g. autism spectrum (PDD, Aspergers), language processing, speech language delay, social language delay, auditory processing disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, language based learning disabilities, etc.
As a new parent to an 9-month old boy, I busy myself reading child development books and checking online resources, to assure myself that he is meeting his developmental milestones each month. While we are playing and having fun, I am assessing his emerging gross and fine motor skills, listening to his burgeoning language, and marveling at his cognitive gains.
