"Hands-down the most important element of my son's developmental journey. By fostering a sense of joy in spontaneous, imaginative play with others, Dr. Rocco was able to help develop better flexibility, vocabulary, and social connection in my son. Put aside 'social skills groups' as you've traditionally thought of them, and experience something more inspiring."

"After working with Dr. Rocco individually and establishing a strong bond, our son then attended 3 years of weekly playgroups at Dr. Rocco and Jazmin Elek's office. This is where our son learned how to talk to,interact with, and enjoy spending time with peers. The space in which these playgroups met and in which Dr. Rocco and Jazmin perform their important work is more like a cross between a kids’ gym and a toy store than a clinic. It feels warm, comforting, and inviting. It is the perfect space for learning to communicate with peers in a fun and meaningful way. If you take your child to Dr. Rocco, she will be treated as an individual, not as a diagnosis."

"While my son participated in his social skills group, he made very positive developmental progress. He learned how to use more language and take turns; greatly improved his eye contact, and most importantly, he enjoyed playing with other children. As a mother, it was very useful to have very close communication with Jazmin and Dr. Rocco. They guided me and gave me valuable advice. I really like the way they run the groups, as they create an environment of playful learning; very different from more rigid and structured approaches. I felt like I had a great team, all working together to help my child. "
