does this sounds familiar?
You have been struggling with keeping students (especially younger students) engaged for 30 minute group sessions. At the end of a 30 minute group therapy session you feel drained, head-achey, not accomplished and dreading the next group therapy session.
You spend too much time planning activities for a therapy group with mixed goals.
You waste time going around gathering students for their group session time.
During the therapy group you try so hard to target each kids' goal needs that you feel overstretched and undereffective in meeting their needs. You have to plan multiple activities to keeps kid busy while you give individual time to one.
