Group Therapy

NEW 2018 Summer GROUP TRIO ADDED – SEE BELOW!
We are excited to announce that Legacy will be offering a set of three groups on Wednesdays starting June 6th, 2018. We will offer a Social Skills, Sibling Support, and Parent Connect Group. Legacy has formatted the three groups to occur simultaneously and to better accommodate your family’s busy summer schedule.

Elementary Social Skills Group

Wednesdays from 3pm – 4pm, 06/06/2018 – 07/18/2018, 6 weeks (excludes the 4th of July)

School-aged boys and girls are welcome. This group will focus on age appropriate social skills, friendship seeking skills, feeling identification, problem solving and self-regulation skills. The goal of this group is to teach children steps towards improved peer interaction in an engaging and motivating way. This group also provides a supportive environment where children can practice learned skills with peers.

Sibling Support Group

Wednesdays from 3pm – 4pm, 06/06/2018 – 07/18/2018, 6 weeks (excludes the 4th of July)

Ages 7-12 boys and girls are welcome. This group will be for siblings of individuals diagnosed with special needs. This will be a place for siblings to explore both the difficult aspects and joys of having a sibling with special needs. We will do this through interactive activities and conversation. Some of the curriculum will be based on materials from workshops called Sibshops.

Parent Connect Group

Wednesdays from 3pm – 4pm, 06/06/2018 – 07/18/2018, 6 weeks (excludes the 4th of July)

This group is designed for parents who have a common experience of having a child who is diagnosed with Autism and/or Intellectual Disability. The goal of this group is for parents to connect with other parents, share information, and share and receive support. A therapist will also be present to help share appropriate resources and moderate discussion.
