About Bearfoot's Nature-Based Social Groups

Does your child have difficulty:

  • Making or keeping friends?

  • Regulating their emotions in a group setting?

  • Reading social cues and perspective taking?

  • Resolving conflict or disagreements with peers?

  • Sharing space in a conversation?

  • Demonstrating important social emotional skills that help them authentically be in community with others?

 

Bearfoot OT takes these social lessons and practices their application through outdoor nature play with peers, using the natural environment to help enhance the experience and provide opportunities for creative, problem solving, sensory-rich fun!

 

All groups are led by a skilled pediatric occupational therapist that is trained to help children with the development of social skills, motor skills and sensory processing.

 

Groups are held outdoors in rain or shine!
