*NEW* Fairy Tale Theatre Social Group
By InterAct: Theatre and Therapy Lab

InterAct is proud to share that we will be running a theatre based social group for children ages 3- 6 on Saturdays. Our sessions will explore two different fairy or folk tales, giving our young learners a chance to be exposed to a variety of characters, plots and themes.

The group will be co- facilitated by Anne Freilich a certified Speech Language Pathologist, who specializes in pragmatics and Gianna Cioffi an arts integration specialist with her masters in Educational Theatre.

Each week, children will engage in theatre and other arts based activities that have been selected to target pragmatic language as well as encourage the development of social emotional learning. *

Stepping Stones to School Skills
“The beauty of music as a therapeutic modality is its adaptability and flexibility.” (Carolyn O. Cantu, MS, OTR)

This group is designed to help children 3-6 years old boost their academic skills. Through music, movement and purposeful play each child will be given an opportunity to work on the basic skills needed for school success: attending to the task at hand, problem solving with peers, fine motor skills necessary for both handwriting and object manipulation, self-esteem and listening skills – important for meaningful participation in the classroom environment.  

The group will be held at The Chatty Child Center.
