How do Social Skills Groups help?

We recognize that now more than ever, children would greatly benefit from fun social interactions. We are all excited to get our children back out with their friends and make some new friends along the way!

Social skills groups enhance children's ability to perform age - appropriate engagement and social interaction skills and can help in the following areas:

Difficulty meeting and making friends  
Difficulty keeping friends 
Difficulty making and maintaining eye contact 
Poor self-esteem 
Trouble with stress management
Exhibits socially unacceptable behavior
Difficulty with picking up nonverbal social cues
Difficulty with body control
