Social Skills Group
The purpose of social skills groups is to increase functional social language skills that a child can use in everyday social settings. Utilizing peers within a group setting allows for the facilitation of progress and generalization of skills by creating a more natural communication setting. The focus of the group is reinforcing positive behaviors such as following directions and routines, functional communication skills, and positive nonverbal communication skills (e.g. eye contact, body language, etc.). Skills addressed include: “rules” of conversations, feelings/emotions, and recognizing, interpreting, and using nonverbal communication.
