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.

 Winter/Spring 2021Group Programs

This winter/spring we are offering a variety of in-person groups, ranging in size from 2 to 6 children.  We are offering some groups at our Durham location and some at our Cary location.  Please be sure to read the group descriptions carefully as you decide what to sign up for.  The format of each group has been determined based on a variety of factors, with keeping our families and staff safe at the forefront of that process.

Group formats are subject to change based on COVID-19 and possible changes in government and clinic polices.  If you have specific questions regarding this, please contact your child’s therapist or our director Brittni Winslow (brittni@emergepeds.com).
