Therapeutic Gaming Groups

Basic Info:

Therapeutic Gaming Groups are run by Licensed Therapists acting as "Game Master" (or GM).  Game Master's utilize modified Dungeons & Dragons and other creative and expressive activities.  Experience with Dungeons & Dragons or other role playing games is not required for participation.  Throughout the course of group intervals, the Game Master will progressively teach group members the rules of a modified version of Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition while tailoring the game experience to help achieve therapeutic goals.

 

Who:

  • Groups are open to children ages 8 and older and separated appropriately by age/maturity level.
  • Groups will consist of up to 5 participants.
  • Groups are specifically helpful for children with issues related to ADHD, Social Anxiety Disorders, Self-Esteem Issues, Anger Management issues, Social Skills related to ASD and other related issues.
  • Groups are helpful for children who lack hobbies/interests apart from television and/or video games.
  • Groups are helpful for children who avoid or struggle with age appropriate socialization.

 

When:

Roll for Progress Therapeutic Gaming Groups occur weekly and run for 3 month intervals.  Groups typically take place on a recurring week night from 6:00pm - 7:30pm.

Once you have signed up, completed intake paperwork, your child will be placed on a waiting list until there is either room in an existing group or a new group has enough participants to begin.

At the conclusion of the 3 month interval, children who wish to continue in their current group for the next interval are given first priority over the wait list.
