Social Skills Groups Blooming this Spring!

🌱Support social thinking and inspire friendships through gardening🌱

Bloom’s outdoor setting is the perfect place for kids to hone their social skills AND their green thumbs! Join us for a unique group that uses gardening to introduce and reinforce social skills and emotional regulation.

Current research supports the use of nature and gardening as a context and modality for therapy. During each group meeting, your child will learn social thinking concepts and practice self-regulation techniques while planning and creating a garden filled with vegetables, flowers, and succulents.

Groups are led by a pediatric occupational therapist who has a passion for gardening. To ensure every child benefits, enrollment will be limited to six children per group.
