*The class is a 12 week program and participants can only start at the beginning of a class.
*Children are grouped by grade level (i.e. 2nd/3rd grade and 4th/5th grade) and groups are formed based on the grade and levels of other interested families. These groups are for children who have cognitive functioning at about grade level or above.
*We work very hard to compose groups of children who are in approximately the same social level. In some cases this may mean waiting a little longer for an appropriate group.
