Cooperative Play Group:
Small specialized group in which students work on improving and enhancing physical, social, cognitive, and emotional development through cooperative play activities. The group is facilitated by an occupational therapist using a variety of expressive media, physical, and social modalities to provide students the opportunity to work on specific skill development. Students develop communication and socialization skills through interactive play, focusing on assertive communication, sharing, and turn taking. Additionally, students work on their ability to collaborate and compromise with others while receiving coaching on problem solving solutions to difficulties and disagreements. Sensory, gross, and fine motor components are integrated into play activities to facilitate the learning experience.
