Join us for Social Skills this fall!!
The Behavioral Pediatrics Clinic is hosting one hour social skills groups this fall for children ages 5 to 8 (4:00 to 5:00 pm) and children ages 9 to 13 (5:30 to 6:30 pm). These groups will be held on Friday afternoons beginning October 25, 2013 . We will use the Skillstreaming
system, which employs a four-part training approach of modeling, role-playing, performance feedback and generalization to teach essential social skills to children and adolescents. Children are motivated with a token system to foster practice with their peers. These groups are designed for children with and without disabilities. Space is limited.
