Help your child get the extra support, practice and direct instruction needed to improve social and conversation skills with peers. Groups are conducted under the guidance of one of our highly-qualified, friendly & energetic Behavioral Consultants.


These groups are designed for children in elementary or middle school who are challenged with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, language delay, social anxiety, or those who may just need extra support and reassurance socially. Groups meet weekly after school or during the daytime in summer.


School-Age Social Skills Goals

  • Increasing understanding of nonverbal communication including body language and emotions
