Social Skills Groups:

Working on Social Skills, Language, Peer Interaction and Attention

Our social skills groups help support attention, social interaction, processing social anxiety issues, general social interaction and language development. Obstacle courses, group games, and swing activities in our sensory-motor gym support gross motor development. Crafts, music and finger play are a part of the curriculum to work on fine motor skills. Attention and listening skill challenges are integrated throughout the program.

Group sessions are for children between 3 and 9 years old. Groups meet one hour a week for ten weeks. Ongoing parental support and weekly feedback are provided throughout the ten weeks.

Is your child struggling to make or keep friends? Our social skills play groups are lots of fun. Children love our sensory-motor gym and learn make friends during cooperative projects, sensory activities, board games and music. Sessions improve the ability to perform as part of a group, share, take turns, attend and learning to cope with challenges and disappointment. Children learn how to be a friend as well as make friends, control impulses and handle frustration. We provide weekly parent carry-over and consult with parents on managing behavior at home.

Please call our office for upcoming dates and times.

Our sensory rich environment and multi-sensory approach lead to improving motivation and participation by learning through play. Our beautiful Sensory-Integration gym and sensory rich materials are specifically used and designed to improve the sensory, motor and social skills of each child.

10-14 Year Olds: Mondays 6:00-7:00 pm
This social skills group is different from others because it will have a focus on developing socials skills essential for the tween aged child preparing to enter the middle school or high school world. This group is for kids who typically have difficulty making friends or reading social cues. It will incorporate technology that appeals to the 10-14 year old age group such as the Wii, iPad and social media sites, which have become part of daily social interactions amongst this age group. Lessons will be interactive, child-directed and differentiated to the needs of all group members. Themes will incorporate trending topics and interests of this peer group and will be developed through child and parent insight and feedback. Home recommendations will be made after each week.

Please note deposits and payments are non-refundable and we can't provide refund or a make-up for missed classes
