We offer social skills groups based on the Children Friendship Training program (Frankle & Myatt, 2003) for children ages 8-12. Our goal is to teach your child how to apply skills learned within the group, with peers at school, and in the community. Skills will be taught in a small-group format with 6-8 children and 1 lead instructor and an assistant instructor.

An eligibility assessment will be conducted in order to determine if your child meets the pre-requisite criteria to join the social skills group. This assessment is essential to identify if your child displays the prerequisite skills to learn within a group setting.

  • Conversational skills
  • Peer group entry
  • Expanding and developing friendship networks

  • Practicing good sportsmanship

  • Parent meetings via Zoom
