Our Social Skills Groups use play and ABA as the primary medium to enhance language comprehension and expression.
Level 1 includes arts and crafts, fine and gross motor play, games, pretend play and more; children will learn the Ready Body Program to teach important skills to be safe and have fun while playing and socializing. For Level 2, children will continue using the Ready Body Program and interact with peers during a variety of activities, including arts and crafts, games, music and pretend play to encourage group participation. Level 3 play becomes more sophisticated and is centered on favorite interests. Components of this group will be expanding interests, using favorites for motivation, and introducing collaborative group activities. Pop culture topics, such as current books and movies, will be discussed. At Level 4, teens will work in groups to complete tasks and participate in games. While doing so, they can improve their skills in listening, following directions, and giving directions. Many fun projects will be completed during their time together. Community outings maybe scheduled based on clients’ needs to generalize skills.
Group is purposefully kept small so each child will get direct instruction from the speech therapist or intervention specialist and have the opportunities to interact with peers. Space is limited to a max of 6 kids per group and staff includes: a therapist and aide to maintain ratio of 3 kids to 1 adult. Children with aggressive behaviors, non-verbal, or with multiple disabilities can attend with support of an individual aide (additional fee). Complete our easy online registration form. Social Group fee includes supplies, visual schedules, transition supports, social stories, and data collection on IEP goals. We can bill to County Boards of DD, Autism Scholarship Program, Jon Peterson Scholarship, school districts, insurance (partial payment), PASSS, and more. **$$We have a list of grants and scholarships on our website to make camp affordable for every family$$** Camp fills – Don’t Delay – Register Today!!!
