Speech, Physical, Occupational Therapy! CTP is proud to offer pediatric group therapy for children in need of multiple therapy services. We provide weekly scheduled groups led by therapists representing the three therapy disciplines, working together to support children’s individual goals.
Building Blocks Group
This group is loaded with fun for 4-5 year olds to work on speech, occupational and/or developmental skills. Monthly themes such as Space, Weather, Circus, Farm, Under the Sea, and Pirates and Princesses will be utilized to target areas such as receptive and expressive language, articulation, social skills, emerging hand writing skills, and fine and gross motor skills. These groups are led by a certified Speech and Language Pathologist (SLP) and a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA). They take place in our new Castle gym where the sky is the limit!
“2016 Language Groups for Toddlers and Preschool Children’s Therapy Place is now offering dynamic language group therapy to address the multi-faceted needs of our clients. These language groups are designed to improve communication skills through play based group therapy for children with speech-language goals. Led by a licensed speech/language pathologist, children will enjoy participation in weekly, hour long sessions to improve expressive, receptive, and pragmatic (social skills) language goals. Sessions will include activities such as arts/crafts, interactive games, songs, free play, and more! Adult participation is required and encouraged for coaching on specific strategies and techniques that can be utilized within the home and community environments.”
Occupational Therapy Groups
“How Does Your Engine Run?” based on the Alert Program for Self Regulation. Led by a licensed Occupational Therapist, this innovative program helps children ages 6-10 and their parents identify appropriate strategies to change or maintain states of alertness for increased productivity and appropriate behavior. Children who have difficulty paying attention/completing tasks, are difficult to motivate, lethargic, hyperactive, aggressive or scattered are good candidates for this program.

Mini Muscles Boys Group (Ages 3-6)
These action packed groups are designed especially for boys and will focus on sensory motor development.

The boys will enjoy obstacle courses, use of a large play structure and games that promote upper body and core strengthening, endurance, motor planning and sequencing. Led by a licensed Occupational Therapist, emphasis will be on proximal stability, ability to move smoothly through transitional patterns, functional use of flexion and extension patterns. Sensory stimulation will be provided through activities that provide proprioception, tactile, and vestibular input.
