Social & Emotional Skills Groups

Our Social skills enrichment program offers a number of different social skills groups ranging from groups for children and teens with ADHD and anxiety, to children and teens who need practice becoming more assertive and confident, as well as groups for children and teens with Asperger’s and other diagnoses. Our unique social skills groups use creative expression, art, play, and interactive games to enrich your child’s interactions with peers.  We teach critical social skills; provide an opportunity to practice the skills while receiving individualized coaching and valuable feedback; and use art to create tangible reminders of the skills so that they generalize into your child’s everyday life.  We are unlike other programs because our social skills program was designed by an Art Therapist; in addition, we use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology, and creative, fun art activities to teach social skills.  Our goal is to emphasize your child’s strengths and to provide your child with the skills and confidence to make and keep meaningful peer relationships.
