Encourage social thinking to enhance your child’s interaction with peers! Our social skills groups use a Social Thinking® curriculum for elementary-age students.
We provide direct instruction for learning to pay attention to the thoughts and actions of others, and making decisions about how to interact with peers.
Much of the curriculum explores sharing space with others, thinking about others in a shared environment and learning to regulate one’s behavior to pertinent social expectations. Additionally, we will learn about group expectations and “hidden rules” in a variety of common situations.
Groups run for four-week sessions, provided at various times throughout the year.
The Speech4Kids staff is very thorough and put my grandson at ease as he is shy of strangers. The take away for my grandson is that he made friends with the other participants which for him is a milestone because this is always a challenge for him… I am grateful for the continued support of these ladies. Very professional, friendly, easy-going!
Space may be limited by availability.
Our social skills groups are designed for children with ASD or developmental delay who are interested in interacting with others and are able to work cooperatively within a small group. If you are unsure if your child is ready for the group, let us know this in the comments section below. We will call you to discuss whether he/she may benefit from a few private social skills sessions prior to joining a group.
Speech4Kids is committed to helping children find their voice and embrace who they are.
