Social Skills

Social Skills is an aftershool program that strengthen your child’s ability for meaningful social relationships.

Social skills are the foundation for getting along with others, and lacking this critical skill can lead to peer rejection and feelings of isolation, leading to emotional difficulties, bullying, and difficulty in making friends. 

Groups are run three times per week for 2 hours. Each member’s progress is periodically assessed, and goals and curriculum are adjusted accordingly.
