540366448Due to numerous requests, we are going to be running follow up groups for kids who have already done a Superflex group. This holiday program will continue to be based on Social Thinking®, a teaching methodology created by Michelle Garcia Winner (www.socialthinking.com) and will centre around the Superflex® curriculum (written by Stephanie Madrigal and Michelle Garcia Winner). This program will work on more self awareness and learning strategies to help defeat the child’s “Unthinkables”. Please talk to your OT if you are interested, as this group is for children who have a certain level of social understanding following individual sessions or other group based programs.

Is your child a fussy eater? Are you finding mealtimes are becoming a time of stress for your family? Come along to our mealtimes group. We will be providing opportunities to explore food, offering suggestions for home and working together to make mealtimes a positive experience. So many children experience anxiety or aversions when it comes to food so we thought we would run a pilot group to provide a safe place to explore food and for parents to learn about some of the underlying causes of fussy eating.
