Play & Social Skills Groups At Our Center
Play + Social Group Offerings
Our preschool participants are served in our developmental playgroup. This service delivery model is focused on building social skills and positive peer to peer interactions skills via a variety of play activities.
Facilitators emphasize the growth of social motivation, initiation, reciprocity and imitation skills while building a functional and social play skills repertoire. Children participate in gross motor time, circle time & rotation through play centers. The ability to play with others lays the foundation for the development of future social skills which are relevant and meaningful to the child.
Adolescent Social Group
Our elementary (adolescent 1) and intermediate (adolescent 2) groups are served in more traditional social skills groups with a behavioral skills training (BST) approach which consists of instruction, modeling, rehearsal & feedback.
Participants practice skills needed to make & maintain friendships through engaging in a variety of activities which have been specifically structured to target specific skills. Target skills include but are not limited to conversation, cooperation & teamwork, emotional regulation, non verbal communication & perspective taking.
Teen & Young Adult Social Groups
Our teens and young adults focus on the skills needed to navigate the increasingly more complex social world. The more our participants are able to communicate wants and needs effectively, employ social problem solving strategies and self advocate, the more opportunities they have for successful inclusion and independence in less restrictive environments.
Topics of instruction and practice include, but are not limited to, relationships and boundaries, internet safety, self advocating, expanding conversational skills, expanding leisure skills repertoire & developing coping skills.
