Building Blocks

Enrollment for the Spring 2021 semester begins on Friday, October 23.

Building Blocks is a small group program designed for 3 – to 5- year old children with difficulties in language, sensory/emotional regulation, and/or social communication development. Based in the SCERTS model and principles of naturalistic developmental behavioral intervention, our daily schedule includes typical preschool activities such as circle time, center time, snack, art/sensory play, and gross motor play on our indoor playground.  Skills developed during activities include developmentally appropriate speech and language targets, participation in group activities, and the building blocks to emerging social conversation.  Each class will be led by 1-2 speech-language pathologists, and supported by graduate students in speech-language pathology from the UTD-Callier Center.  Class size will be limited to 4 children.

“Right fit” children for this group may have the following characteristics:

  • Delayed speech/language development
  • Challenges in social communication skills, including conversation
  • Challenges in play skills
  • Challenges in classroom skills
  • Sensory processing difficulties
