Children's Self and Social Identity Groups

Dance/movement therapy groups for children use fun movement and creative arts experiences to support children to learn more about themselves and their feelings while having positive connections with peers. Groups are formed based on children's shared needs, ages and schedules. These groups are particularly helpful to meet the needs of children on the autism spectrum, with other developmental issues, cognitive delays, physical challenges, or ADHD.

Groups for children with developmental issues will use dance, rhythm, and creative movement play to develop self-awareness, support peer relationships, and to develop motor skills.
