Time is spent each week in teaching an age-appropriate social skill, activities that focus on practicing the skill, and in socializing with peers. Practicing each skill with peers during group encourages real life application of the skill outside of group. Groups create a positive environment that focuses on rewarding pro-social behaviors and increasing quality interactions with peers. 

 

Sessions will be held in person for 6 weeks.
