What is a social skills group?
Children with social skills difficulties needed guided support and encouragement to help them visualize and put into effect new ways of connecting and staying connected to peers. In our social skills groups, therapists facilitate various practice scenarios in a fun and encouraging way so that children can improve their abilities to communicate with peers and authority figures. Our groups focus on improving a child’s overall self-confidence, making and keeping, friends, and behaving appropriately when in stressful situations. Children are taught how to implement what is learned in group into their outside environment.
