Executive functioning and emotional regulation are foundational abilities necessary for engaging in a variety of environments. For our upper elementary and middle school kiddos, cooking activities are a great way to foster these life skills in a social environment. Developed & led by doctors of occupational therapy, Mindful Masterchefs focuses on fostering your child’s social-emotional skills using a holistic and play-based approach within a peer group setting as we explore new foods and try new recipes together. Each week will focus on a specific topic using evidence-based curriculum from Social Thinking and Zones of Regulation. Group sizes are limited to ensure each child receives individualized attention and support based on their skill level.
