Structured Play Group

Group Description:

These 8-week groups are designed to emphasize the continued development of adaptive social and conflict-resolution skills as well as build self-esteem and social confidence.  Organized play and drawing activities are used to reinforce weekly topics such as initiating & developing friendships, working cooperatively as a team, appropriate communication and recognizing personal strengths.  Structured play groups are free of charge and offered to all Westwood children in kindergarten - 5th grade. 

2018-2019 Group Registration Available Soon!

Group Details for the 2017-2018 School Year:

Please note: All groups meet from 4:00 – 5:00 PM and are coed. Groups consist of approximately 6-8 children and are co-lead by two clinical staff from our department. As a result, all children should feel comfortable and be able to be successful in a 1:4, adult-to-child ratio. All groups are filled on a “first-come, first-served” basis.
