Social Skills Groups:  

Social skills groups focus on developing and working on strategies for optimal socialization.

Therapists use a variety of play-based approaches, including the How Does Your Engine Run?® / Zones of Regulation programs, to teach self-regulation and coping strategies within a social environment. Parents and caregivers are provided with strategies to promote optimal carry over of skills learned at home. Learning such skills has shown to improve:

  • Teamwork
  • Problem-solving
  • Conflict resolution
  • Listening skills
  • Perspective-taking
  • Conversation skills

Social skills groups take place each summer and are facilitated by an occupational and/or speech therapist. Each course is specifically formed and implemented to meet the unique needs of the children in that group. Children develop life-long friendships and learn social skills that can apply at home, school, and in the community!
