STAR Institute social groups and clubs aim to help your child thrive as their favorite selves. The focus of groups is to facilitate development of social confidence, and help children enjoy friendships and community, and find shared interests.

STAR Institute social flourishing groups focus on enabling the child to successfully navigate the world and advocate for themselves on their own terms, while honoring their nature, natural communication style and sensory needs.

Communicating, Relationship-building, Exploring sensation, Working together

The STAR CREW Program builds social pragmatic cognition and awareness, social problem-solving, and interactive play for children ages 3 years and up.

  • Expands non-verbal and verbal social language tools
  • Increases ability to initiate social interaction with peers
  • Provides safe and supportive experiences of social success and friendship building  
  • Let's children experience social awareness, compassion and social problem solving
  • Allows expansion of ability to self-regulate during play

CREW is organized around games and play while meeting a child’s individual sensory needs. The program is geared for verbal children that have basic peer awareness and would benefit from therapeutic activities to build friendship making skills. These positive experiences are foundational building blocks for a child’s social development.

Individual and group therapy can be concurrent. Small groups are a perfect transition for children who have completed individual therapy, but are not yet ready to take on the YMCA! Children who have traveled to STAR Institute from afar may also wish to participate in groups if our groups that are scheduled are appropriate for the particular individual. Individual Therapy during either the morning or afternoon and Group Therapy during the other part of the day can sometimes be arranged, depending on the groups that are currently in process.

We plan our groups around the children and their interests. We find a set of children with similar needs and if timing permits we group the children together to provide socially appropriate groups.

2021 Sessions - In-person

Cost: $960 ($150 deposit to hold your spot, balance due when you arrive)
