Hello and welcome to Academy MetroWest’s Blog!
Academy MetroWest is a children’s group therapy program located in Natick, MA. Our groups meet in a gymnasium setting and center on cooperative, non-competitive physical activity as a means of helping children and adolescents enhance social skills and self-image. Participants at Academy MetroWest range in age from 6 – 15 and present with a wide range of issues, including ADHD, Asperger’s Disorder, Non-verbal Learning Disorder, and other issues in which social skills delays are a significant part of the profile.
My goal in writing this blog is to focus on issues related to kids and adolescents – particularly those who have been described by that popular adjective “quirky.” Owing to the work I’ve done here at Academy MetroWest for the past 18+ years, the focus is likely to be on issues related to social skills but I’m planning on delving into other issues as well. I hope to make things informative and fun. Welcome aboard!
