Group Readiness – Social Skills Group
October 11, 2018 @ 6:00pm - 7:30pm
The Group Readiness – Social Skills Group is a 10 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 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.
