Our after school groups are a unique environment for children with disabilities. Group work provides a variety of benefits including: the opportunity for social interaction, increased motivation, healthy competition, peer support, and scaffolding (the opportunity for each child to learn from others and teach others). Our groups are typically comprised of 4 to 8 kids with a staff to child ratio of 1-1 or 1-2. The group creates a dynamic atmosphere for learning that increases motivation, which is instrumental for success. Children are often willing to try activities in a group that may be too intimidating in a 1-to-1 setting. Each child’s individual goals are addressed within a group environment.
