Social Stars

Kids at Koke Mill provides a group therapy program led by a speech therapist and occupational or physical therapists. Social Stars is designed to help children develop their communication and social language skills. Classes are offered for both pre-school (ages three to five) and school-aged children. All children are welcome.

Goals include:

  • Increasing social communication
  • Turn taking
  • Initiating conversation with peers
  • Developing cooperative play skills
  • Increasing attention and use of social manners

Because play is a child's work, Social Stars is a fun way to learn and practice communication. Stories, games, crafts, songs, snacks and sensory activities are used to introduce and teach social language skills.

Hour-long sessions are offered at varying times at Koke Mill Medical Center. If you would like more information or would like to join us, call (217) 862-0400 or email us.
