Let’s Chat! Group: Teen – Young Adults

Conversation starters, communication exchanges back and forth, responding to questions, asking questions, talking their way to independence. Providing our high schoolers the opportunities to communicate in various settings and with various individuals is the goal of this group. What’s the next step to teach when your child has language, but doesn’t know how to functionally use it, generalize it, or utilize it to move forward in their daily life? If these are your concerns, then this is the group for your child. The Let’s Chat group provides each child the individual skills to establish, initiate and sustain conversation needed to build relationships. Personal relationships, business relationships, courteous relationships encountered through the day, are targeted during these sessions. Let us help equip your child with the conversation skills needed to initiate healthy friendships, sustain interview skills, and build overall communication success in their daily lives. Let’s start Chatting today!!!!!

Teens On the Move: PreTeen/Teen

This group is dedicated to getting our teens moving and grooving together in games, obstacle courses, and dance.

Movement is meant to stimulate the mind, motivate interaction and engage with their peers, while reducing lethargic responses to reciprocal interactions. This group is geared toward increasing our teens and pre-teens physical and mental energy and in return building stronger socialization and team building skills amongst one another.

Perspective Taking Group: 6-9 years of age / 13-18 years of age

Perspective taking focuses on what it means to be a “good friend”, a productive student, a considerate and courteous individual to others. This class allows our younger clients to deal with the range of emotions from being upset, frustrated, and anger towards others and or less preferred situations.  This group also increases social awareness to cues from others regarding their feelings. Bringing these cognitively strong minds together, we discuss how to treat others, provide them the opportunities to build stronger relationships, teach how to become part of a successful team, learn to enjoy and appreciate working with others. If you have been seeking an environment for your child to thrive amongst others successfully, respect adult instruction and to have a safe place to discuss the importance of how they feel, how others might feel, and why, then this is the class for your child.
