Snack Pack: A Therapeutic Meal Time
This group provides an opportunity for children to socialize with others while engaging in fun cooking activities. Kids learn about working cohesively, working through problems, and taking turns. Throughout the weeks, they also learn about friendship, teamwork, self-awareness, and emotional regulation. At the end of each session, the kids sit down together to enjoy their tasty snacks, which will enhance the development of self-confidence and pride in their culinary accomplishments.

Children learn the meaning of teamwork, having good “sportsmanship”, confidence and friendship. Children also work on developing self-regulation awareness and tools to help them “on and off the court” while understanding how to be a good “sport”, be a team player, develop more self-confidence and basic leadership skills.
Teen Group (Life Skills & Organizational Strategies)
This teen group focuses on supporting social skills through participation in daily living activities such as cooking, planning parties, and organizing and participating in age-appropriate social interactions. Teens focus on their organizational skills, problem-solving skills and independent life skills in this group. This group’s focus is on helping teens generalize independent skills in their natural environments so select sessions will be scheduled in real-life community settings (e.g. bowling alley, restaurant).
