Aspen Weekday Programs

The Grove

The Grove program is for children ages 4-6 and is taught by one of our Speech-Language Pathologist.  In this class, we strive to develop the whole child and prepare them for his/her upcoming years in school.  We have a heavy focus on social, executive functioning and sensory regulation skills that every child needs to thrive in a school setting.  Children will engage in sensory, fine motor, academics, structured and child directed playtime. We develop strategies to improve a child's inhibition, emotional control, working memory, planning/prioritizing, flexibility, organization, self-monitoring and understanding different points of view. This group is perfect for a child that needs some extra assistance learning skills that make a classroom dynamic more manageable and enjoyable.

The GROVE is currently being offered on Tuesday/Thursday mornings from 9-12. Enrollment limited to 4 students. Please contact us for availability.
