At Beyond
Classroom Walls

we provide a variety of social skills and language development groups that are dynamic, fun and engaging taught by an interdisciplinary team consisting of a speech therapist, occupational therapist, social worker or psychologist. Our interdisciplinary approach positions us to offer a wide variety of skills and therapy techniques to meet the unique needs of our neuro-diverse population. Although your child may be 7 or 11 years of age, we think about what their life will look at age 25. In addition we offer two, one-week summer camps. A variety of speech therapy services are also available. Welcome!

The
Inspiration

for Beyond Classroom Walls was co-created by a Elizabeth Peterson, Speech therapist and Sommer Bowdre a special education teacher who understand that students with a language, communication, developmental delay or lack important social skills benefit from intensive training to build skills and position every child to reach their maximum potential. Our highly talented therapists have experience ranging from 10-30 years and provide life changing results. We value providing children social skill and language development instruction alongside their peers allowing them to learn these skills from one another through natural occurrences. We are conveniently located in the SE Denver and Aurora area.


 

Our Groups, Camps and Speech

Therapy Services:

 

Each group is taught by a speech therapist, occupational therapist, social worker or psychologist who believes that working with kids during fun and live action activities drive results. Our primary focus is social skills and language development. We group our students based on the best peer match when it comes to language, cognition and behavior. Therefore, we use our grade levels as a guide and may recommend a different group that is the best match for your child. We offer a complementary consultation. Your child may try a session for free to determine the program that is a great fit.
