Social Skills Training

Social Skill Training is designed for children or adolescents who have a variety of social, communication, and relationship problems. Some children are too shy, others react impulsively or create conflicts, but many have few friends or seem unaware of interpersonal cues. We offer Social Skills groups for grades K-12 with most children attending a group with children of similar age and gender. Additionally, we have several groups for children with Asperger’s Syndrome as these children have many interpersonal difficulties due to tendencies to “march to their own drummer”. Treatment offers a ready-made social situation where the child is accepted for who he or she is while learning new ways of relating to others.
