Saturday Social Skills
Our Saturday Social Skills programs are designed to provide children and young adults the appropriate strategies needed to become socially successful. Evidence-based practices are utilized using sensory, motor, and tactile activities which are intertwined into every program by a well-trained staff, in a safe and supportive environment.

Students are taught team sports, games, and functional age-appropriate interactions. Each session focuses on sharing, turn-taking, flexibility, "small talk", and communication with others. Role modeling directed by staff is on positive responses, respect for each other, listening, encouraging each other, and following directions.

Each group activity is created to meet the needs of each individual, based on their specific needs. We pride ourselves on looking at each child as an individual, working with the skills they have, and building upon them rather than changing them.
