This Summer we can help your child improve their social skills!! Does your preschooler or kindergartner have difficulty making and keeping friends? Would they benefit from recognizing social cues? Does your child need help expressing emotions appropriately? Maybe they have been diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism, or AD/HD? Or are they simply shy or socially awkward? Are there issues with your child’s behavior being disruptive at home, school, or daycare? Some children need a little extra help learning social skills! Through a series of lessons, activities, games, role-play, community field trips, our group leaders will teach your child to enhance his/her social skills and self-esteem. This summer group will place an emphasis on practicing conversational and play skills with peers.
