Integrated Autism Program

Social Skills Groups

The social skills groups being offered by Lori Krasny, M.S., CCC-SLP are therapeutic group interventions designed for young school age children (approximately 4-9 years old).  These groups are intended for children with autism spectrum disorders and social communication difficulties who would benefit from learning and practicing social skills and interpersonal interaction with peers.  Children are grouped by social, developmental and language interaction abilities. Within these groups, the goals are to promote genuine and positive peer experiences, create a sense of belonging and friendship, and develop skills to promote these interactions.  This is best achieved when developmentally, the children enrolled have an interest in engaging with others and are able to self regulate in a group setting.


Groups are offered throughout the week after school from 4:00-5:15 P.M. from October – April for 25 weeks. These groups typically consist of 12 children with 3 group leaders.  Summer groups are also offered June – July for 7 weeks.   These groups typically consist of 6 children with 2 group leaders.  Support and education is provided to caregivers while their children participate in group.

PLAY2Learn Groups

In addition to running the Social Skills groups, Lori Krasny, M.S., has developed the PLAY2Learn program – adapted from the P.L.A.Y. Project™ in Ann Arbor, MI.

The PLAY2Learn groups are comprised of up to 4 families, meeting for 2 1/2 hours per week for 10 weeks. The purpose of the group is to provide families with a crash course and guided practice using DIR®/Floortime. Parents leave with an understanding of how to implement Floortime with their child. Floortime utilizes a child's natural interests, individual preferences and daily play interactions to help parents make all interactions with their child more engaging and fun. Ultimately, it will help the child develop social, emotional and language skills necessary for learning and interacting with others. These sessions include observation, modeling, discussion, video review, and weekly practice activities. Regular attendance and practice between sessions is required.

The groups meet at 9:00-11:30 A.M. or from 12:30 – 3:00 P.M. Groups start in January, April and September. The day(s) of the week are determined each session.
