Group Structure

  • A typical group will start with an introduction to the day’s topic followed by a book.

  • Next, a structured activity will take place on the day’s topic to enhance learning and/or teach a skill.

  • The final portion of group is freeplay. During free-play, children are given open access to the Museum and can make choices to play in whatever way they prefer.

  • Your therapist will continue to observe and provide support to children and parents, as-needed.

Parent Involvement and Support

  • Multiple parent/caregiver groups are held through-out the semester and are included in your registration.

  • Parent groups are run by Rachel Sessions, LCPC - an experienced therapist and school counselor.

How does it work?

  1. Complete a 40 minute, parent(s)-only intake with your therapist via secure video.

  2. Attend a 20 minute observation session during open playtime at Stop Drop and Play.

  3. Receive confirmation of group placement & time OR support in finding the best services if group if for any reason group therapy is not recommended at this time.

Stop Drop and Play Children’s Museum, 9882 Main Street, Damascus, MD
