"Mommy, no one wants to play with me." - Making and keeping friends doesn't always come easily...but social skills can be learned.  It takes modeling, guided play and practice.  We can help!
 
Our Social Skills Groups are for children who are experiencing difficulties in social settings such as play dates, school, or the playground.  Experienced group leaders provide a small and safe setting where children feel supported in learning to interact successfully with their peers.
 
Skills such as identifying and expressing feelings, taking turns and sharing, listening, assertiveness, solving problems, and dealing with transitions are taught through direct and interactive instruction while incorporating play, games, art, and role playing.  
 
As a parent you gain:
  • Weekly opportunity to consult with group leaders about your child’s progress and how to support growth of social skills at home and in school
  • One individual parent meeting at the end of the program to review your   child’s strengths, areas for improvement, and recommendations for going  forward

Pre-registration requirements: Intake Interview - $95
