Social Skills

“Social skills”refers to the skills needed to interact successfully with peers. Many children are excellent communicators with adults; however, they’re not always as skilled with their peers. Our social skills groups are designed to teach these skills to children who need additional help with peer interaction. Participants often demonstrate difficulty in joining in with groups, initiating interactions, sustaining conversations, making appropriate comments, and regulating their own emotions for positive and successful interactions. Children are grouped by developmental and/or chronological age. Not all children will be working on the same area, as one child’s strength is another child’s weakness. This diversity allows children to be models to each other.
