Description

This group was part of the Occupational Therapy Education Services (OTCES) group programs and was for girls only, ages 10-13. The girls baked everything from raspberry surprise muffins and cinnamon rolls, to homemade cake and ice cream. They played volleyball and four square, danced to the girls' favorite tunes and explored together in the gym. They engaged in self-awareness activities to get to know themselves and each other a little better - they shared through storytelling, made acrostic poems with the letters of their names and created personalized collages.
