Baobab offers group programs to support social skills development, emotional regulation and school readiness.
Working in small groups, children can engage in social learning and put new skills into practice within a group context. All sessions are fun and interactive and include story time, imaginative play and group games interwoven with social learning.
Each program is led by a qualified Occupational Therapist and includes a brief summary report at the conclusion of the program outlining your child’s progress in key goal areas.
If you are interested in our group programs but your child has not yet attended our service, we will need to book you in for an initial consultation first. It’s important for us to discuss your child’s unique developmental journey, needs and goals in order to determine which program would be the right fit for them.
