SOCIAL SKILLS GROUPS: AFTER SCHOOL & WEEKENDS

Brighton offers Social Groups several nights a week, at the Elementary, Secondary and Young Adult levels. Groups are open to students who do not currently attend Brighton, as well as Brighton students. These groups are held at Brighton School and in the community, and give an opportunity to build and strengthen basic skills and knowledge related to rules, expectations and social pragmatics including communication, conversation and group skills.  Through various recreational and leisure activities, participants will learn the foundations of team work, individual & group choices, and fairness.  Students will be able to socialize with their peers in a safe and supportive environment while acquiring knowledge and skills to further develop their social skills.  Please visit our sister website at www.brightonsocialgroups.ca for more information and to register for programs.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY & SPEECH THERAPY SERVICES

Brighton offers private, fee-based Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy Services through a private provider, as well as free in-school CCAC theraphy for students who qualify for services. Therapists work closely with teachers to integrate therapy and therapeutic interventions into the classrooms and into real-time applications. Every effort is made to schedule therapy so as not to interfere with core subjects.

Speech-Language Pathologists can assist students at Brighton School who are experiencing language learning difficulties, articulation challenges, and social communication skills challenges.  Occupational Therapists can assist children with fine motor/handwriting skills, play & socialization, organization & planning of motor skills, and use of adaptive equipment to assist in accessing school curriculum and environmental modifications in the school setting.

If you are interested in arranging therapy for your child, please contact the office at 416-932-8273 extension 120.
