School-Age Group (Ages 6-11)

School-Age Group will be running during Fall of 2021. School-Age group (ages 6-11) will meet once a week on Thursdays from 2:00PM – 3:00PM beginning September 30th and continuing to November 18th. To enhance safety, this group will meet outside in an enclosed courtyard space within the IOP building. Make up days for weather cancellations will be scheduled as needed. The mandatory accompanying parent/caretaker group will be held at the same time in an inside location at the IOP. However, please be aware that this may change due to COVID-19 prevalence and public health needs. Should in-person groups not be possible this fall, we will do our best to provide online options.

All adults in the parent group for our School-Age group and all children and teens age 12 and older must show proof of having been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for at least two weeks prior to the first group date. At this time masks will be required for everyone when indoors. We will send an update if this mask requirement changes. Parent/caretaker participation in the parent group is mandatory.

A Project Rex intake for children and teens is required prior to group participation. Please call 843-792-9162 to schedule the initial intake. Once the intake is complete, call 843-876-0760 to register to attend.

This 8-week group is designed to enhance social skills of children with high-functioning ASD and ADHD. Diagnosis is not required for participation.

Social skills are introduced through social stories and include greetings, conversation skills, types of social relationships, boundaries, managing frustration and anger, and more. Groups include sensory and gross motor activities to enhance play skills.

To schedule an intake, call (843) 792-9162 and request a Project Rex Assessment.

Once the intake is complete, contact administrative assistant Patricia Gethers at (843) 876-0760 to confirm attendance in the group series.

Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to each group meeting for sign in and registration.

Interested patients and family must commit to being able to attend each group session. We can no longer allow patients and family members to join the group after the first week. We ask if you know you cannot commit to the full 8 week series to instead consider attending a future round of the program. Thanks for your continued support and cooperation as we work with all insurances to ensure that our programs remain available to all children.
