Therapeutic Group Programs Doodle

Therapeutic Group Programs are an opportunity for children to receive an intensive therapy experience in a small group setting. These programs are designed to help children become more successful in meeting the demands and expectations of everyday life. This is done through playful engagement in success oriented activities in a setting that offers natural opportunities for engagement.

Our Group Programs are open to both children who are current Emerge clients as well as those who are not. Early registration is recommended as our programs tend to fill quickly.
