Some children appear to have no problems with expressive language, but they find social situations difficult. Often parents express that their child can talk but he has problems making friends, he only wants to talk about certain things, he doesn’t seem interested in other people, or he insists on having things his way.
Our social skills groups do more than work on traditional social skills. We mainly focus on the curriculum from Michelle Garcia Winner taught using researched based ABA strategies. Your child will learn perspective taking, greater awareness of their thoughts and emotions, how to identify and solve a social problem, play skills, how to learn and work in a group, the back-and-forth structure of conversations, and the ability to develop friendships. We incorporate a fun and active monthly theme to target each skill. Through concept introduction, expansion, and generalization, the group progressively learns how to apply each skill across all settings.
