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.

Group Details for the 2019-2020 School Year:
Please Note: All groups meet from 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM and are coed. Groups consist of approximately 6-8 children and are co-led 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.
Due to the popularity of this program and our mission to serve all Westwood residents, we request that you limit enrollment to one group per child per academic year. If your child is interested in repeating a group during the school year, please call to discuss further at (781) 320-1006.
