Summer 2021!!! We can help your child improve their social skills!! Does your child 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, our group leaders will teach your child to enhance their social skills and self-esteem. This summer group will place an emphasis on practicing conversational and play skills with peers.
The following topics will be covered:
Play and Conversational Skills:
- Asking questions
- Winning and losing
- Problem solving skills
- Greeting people
- Conversational skills
- Working together and playing with others in a group
- Taking turns and sharing
Understanding Social Skills:

- Speaking with an appropriate tone and volume
- How to respond in a socially appropriate way to personal triggers
