Social Skills Group

Social skills group training overcomes challenges commonly experienced by individuals with autism spectrum disorders (high-functioning), social communication disorder, Asperger's, ADHD, nonverbal learning disability (NLD) and similar diagnoses.  A treatment framework and curriculum is developed which targets improving individual social thinking abilities. Using social skills group training, we build social  and related skills in students and adults. 

Prior to beginning  therapy, an interview with the guardian/case manager is conducted and the individual receives a comprehensive evaluation that assesses the individual's skill set across the domains of behavior, language, social cognition, executive functioning, vocational, academic and self-help. A written report including formal recommendations is provided. The individual is assigned a team of therapists and a program supervisor, who oversees the individual's progress.

Social Skills Groups Services are at  our treatment center and in the community. Our  program allows for treatment to occur in multiple environments.  We provide a highly individualized program, which requires a minimum six hours of therapy weekly consisting of three sessions over three separate days, two of the sessions can be in-home.

Services are provided Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm in three two hour sessions:

We have years of experience working with students and adults providing  comprehensive services  that are designed to improve the quality of life of each of our clients. Students and adults that are impacted by varying disabilities often display challenging behaviors that interfere with their daily lives and ability to integrate in the community. We provide behavioral support services for agencies and organizations that serve these  individuals (generally in an ICF or HCS capacity) through the use of a Social Skills Assessment and a Functional Behavioral Assessment and subsequent treatment plan, development of the plan,  and monitoring.
