Group activities are essential to helping children with autism develop social and communication skills. At The Place for Children with Autism, we model a traditional preschool experience so that children can focus on group activities, allowing them to develop social and communication skills with their peers. Activities such as circle time, free play, structured play, dance, music and art programs, group lunch and snack time all allow for group social interaction.
Our BCBAs lead and oversee all group activity, ensuring that one-on-one attention in line with each child’s customized treatment plan is always available as needed. The goal of group activities, however, is to eventually fade out reliance on one-one-one support and encourage children to socialize in group settings independently.

Our group activities focus on the developing joint attention, self-regulation, social language skills, and classroom and group behavior. Group socialization skills are assessed at baseline and throughout the program to ensure our children are improving group behavior skills and reaching traditional milestones of their same-aged peers.
Due to COVID-19, and in compliance with CDC and other health recommendations, group activities have been temporarily modified to protect the safety of our children and staff. For example, group activities may now involve a set distance between each child and the number of children involved in a given activity may be fewer.
