Middle School comes with a number of new challenges.
The story we often see is that a child is social early-on, but as the social complexities of life occur, parents start to see their child struggle to make and keep friendships. Children may isolate, try “too hard” to make friends or lack initiative in starting conversations.
This group 12- session group will help your child build a healthy foundation of social skills. Such skills include: basic communication behaviors, initiating conversations, picking up on social cues, handling disagreements, and assertiveness training.
We offer a safe, comfortable place for your child to express themselves, and participate in role-play exercises with their peers to build confidence, self-esteem, and resilience.
