Social Skills Groups
We offer social skills groups with therapists who have been trained in the Social Thinking methodology. Social groups offer a safe & supportive space to practice friendship & interpersonal skills. Participation in a group is typically paired with weekly or bi-weekly individual treatment sessions.
When you come see us, you will find that we have two therapy rooms that are calm and well-appointed for both kids and adults who enjoy spending sessions playing or sitting at a table or on the floor.
