Social Skills Groups
Our social skill groups are designed to help children through young adults develop the skills to effectively communicate in social situations. Social skills groups benefit those with ADHD, Asperger's Disorder, Tic Disorders, Social Anxiety Disorder, or anyone who experiences social challenges. Skills are taught in a fun, accessible way and generally involve games, team work, and communication skills. We use the evidence-based PEERS® curriculum for children, adolescents, and young adults to help them navigate social challenges.
