A chance to work on social skills with peers

“My son has always struggled a bit with making friends. This group gave him the confidence and tools needed to feel comfortable with peers!”

-mother of a 3-year-old son

“This group works on much more than social skills. My son learned coping skills, developed better attention, and just seemed happier all around.”

-mother of a 3-year-old son


What is the social skills group?

This is a 1-hour, highly structured class where the focus is on developing appropriate social skills, behavioral strategies, and self-regulation skills..  The routine includes a dedicated movement activity (gross motor), circle (language and academics), and table activity (fine motor). Sensory strategies and language are embedded throughout the class. Our small class size (4) allows for a high level of adult support and facilitation. Great for children in Speech Therapy or Occupational Therapy!

daily routine

Free Play – About 15 minutes. This time allows your child to transition from the outside world, get their bodies regulated, and start playing with peers. Kasey will facilitate peer social interaction, as needed.

Circle and Group Activity – Time to check in, sing songs, read a book, and share with friends.

Gross Motor Activity- We get the body moving before moving to a seated activity. This increases attention and body awareness when expected to sit. Our gross motor activity may include a movement song, obstacle course, games like Simon Says, or Yoga. Research shows that language and social skills increase with movement!

Table Activity– Usually a multi-step art activity. Areas worked on are: Following direction, remembering the sequence, asking a peer for a material, fine motor skills, and creativity!

Closing Circle – See you next time!
