Sessions for different ages run throughout the year (typically on Tuesday evenings) with screening appointments scheduled prior to the start of the group.
In Social Skills Groups, children practice socializing with a small group of peers in a safe environment. All meetings include instruction, role-playing and/or practice, and feedback designed to help children learn skills to establish friendships and have positive social interactions while having fun in a group setting.
Caregivers will be informed about the skills learned during group sessions, provided an opportunity to have feedback during an individual consultation about their child, and are invited to attend a parent talk during their child’s group session.
Group therapy provides caregivers and children a safe, controlled environment in which to learn and practice skills. Participants are encouraged to participate as they feel comfortable, allowing themselves and others to benefit and learn from their contributions.
