For more information about how we can offer these groups to your school please contact Abi on 07903 085883.

These groups work well if parents are involved and are aimed at children without identified difficulties or diagnoses.  However, all sessions are adapted to meet the needs of the individual children attending and can accomodate children with additional needs.

“Brilliant fun for Harry. He really enjoyed coming and really informative for me. It has made us focus on getting dressed and undressed at home and given us lots of ideas to practice. It helped to find out what was expected of children going to playschool.”

 “It has been amazing and made such a difference. Before the sessions started I hadn’t even thought about dressing/undressing and now my son does it all by himself in just four weeks.”
