Our social groups are a great way for children to improve peer interactions in a facilitated and supportive environment.
If interested in having your child join a social group, contact us for a free group consult.
Depending on the child or adolescents age, social skill groups may target:
turn-taking, collaborative play, initiating play, maintaining play, self-advocacy, conversational skills or understanding non-verbal cues and language.
Many children with executive function challenges may have difficulty initiating tasks, asking for help, manipulating multiple things at once and with organization.
All of these areas of difficulty can make it difficult to participate in the classroom and in peer situations.
Most of the social skill groups are embedded with some instruction of social thinking concepts but with some groups it is the sole focus. These groups may target areas such as: flexible thinking, problem solving, emotional regulation and perspective taking.
Therapists use a variety of curriculums including the Social Thinking curriculums and the Zones of Regulation.
Whether diagnosed with selective mutism or if your child is having a difficult time initiating and maintaining peer relationships, our small groups can be a great opportunity to support confidence and practice engaging with peers.
