Group Programs

A lot of children with language delays have peer interaction issues. Making friends is critical to social and emotional well-being. Friends serve as confidantes, companions, counselors and comrades, and children with friends report more confidence and less depression from feeling lonely.

Social Pragmatic skills group programs aim to increase initiation and maintenance of play or conversation based on age-appropriateness. In younger children (3 years to 10 years) , we typically focus on cooperative play skills and increasing joint engagement; while in older children (10 years to 18 years) focus is on executive-function skills such as planning peer hang-outs, scripting conversations with friends etc.

Magpie uses a combination of scripting, video modeling, social thinking, mind-maps, social stories, role playing, group outings, zones of regulation and 5 point scale to develop a very effective social skills program. Our group size varies from a small group of 3 to a large group of 6 children with a ratio of 1 therapist for 2 children.

Some of our goals include,

  • Acceptable Behavior and Compliance in a group

  • Classroom Simulations

  • Peer Collaboration and Negotiation

  • Controlling Emotional Outbursts

  • Social Rules of various situations like Playground, Birthday parties, Shopping  etc.

  • Whole Body Regulation

  • Critical Thinking 

  • Taking Perspective

  • Problem Solving

  • Cooperative Play
