We run groups to help kids get along with peers! From quirky kids who don’t pay attention to social cues to kids with diagnosed Autism Spectrum Disorders, we can help!
Target skills are selected according to individual and group needs, and include language
skills such as balancing talking and listening, paying attention to others, finding shared
interests, making and receiving suggestions and compromising. We also work on thinking
flexibly, self-advocacy, sensory integration, emotional regulation, self-awareness and
independence. Intervention methods include direct instruction, visual support, discussion
and reflection. Groups are supported by volunteers who provide additional models of expected social interaction, as well as more opportunities to practice with a variety of communication partners.
