Group Readiness – Social Skills Group
April 15 @ 6:00pm - 7:00pm
The Group Readiness – Social Skills Group is a 9 week program that was created for early learners, who have not yet developed group and play skills. Evidence-based concepts will be used throughout each session to teach participants skills that will prepare them for future social skills groups, such as: following group instruction, whole body listening, and how to join and participate in a group. Opportunities to practice these new skills will be incorporated into each session through play-based activities and games. Snacks will be provided.
