Extended Group TherapyPrograms (3 – 6 hour experiences)

BLAST is excited to launch a series of extended group therapy programs similar to parent’s night out and holiday camp programs. Designed with BLAST participants in mind but open to all, these programs are for fun and building friendships with an emphasis social skills.

Thanksgiving and Winter Break Programs 2022

We are excited to expand our community events to include Thanksgiving Week and Winter Break Group Programs. These therapy groups are designed for BLAST participants but open to friends, siblings, and the community as well. It will include BLAST style social skills with games and activities, community integration (off site locations) and more. Unlike our traditional social skills training hours are longer (3- or 6- hour options) and a greater emphasis will be placed on friendship building . Sign up for one day or all. Half day and full day options are available.  $50 for half day and $90 for full day, per day, per child. We require a minimum of 5 participants to run each day.

For these days, high school and young adult participants will participate in a leadership development program. They will be separate for most activities from our younger participants (depending upon enrollment numbers) except to practice their leadership skills
