Group sessions give schools the opportunity to support many students at once. These sessions are a time for children to receive a sensory break throughout their school day.
To create groups, teachers identify students who display tricky behaviors or may benefit from one of the services we offer (occupational therapy, speech therapy, social skills groups, and reading support). From these chosen groups, therapists observe the students and further and identify students that would benefit from group sessions, along with students who may need extra support through 1:1 sessions at school.
Schools are responsible for paying for group sessions, and parents are responsible for paying for 1:1 sessions. After we identify students in group sessions who would benefit from individual support, schools provide parent contact information for HTC to set up client intake and agreements, scheduling of sessions, and payment.
If your school is not interested in group sessions but would like 1:1 support for students, you can refer families to us, and we will have a conversation with the parents about how HTC can support their children.
Happiness Therapy Center provides group reports to schools on a monthly basis.
