We are pleased to be able to offer different groups that focus on different areas of development. All children interested in social skills groups will be assessed and placed in groups based on the results of the assessment and parent interview.
Groups being offered include:
Foundations Group! Our foundations group works on teaching the skills necessary to be able to learn in a group environment with other peers. Skills targeted in this group include successfully transitioning away from a caregiver and into a classroom, transitioning from activity to activity, generalizing skills, sharing toys and attention, requesting attention, independent play skills and social skills.
Let’s Play Together! RCS’ “Let’s Play Together” social skills groups focus on teaching developmentallyappropriate play skills within a fun and engaging group setting using research-based ABA teaching procedures. Play skills targeted include independent play skills (with vocals), parallel play with peers, group games, and pretend play skills.
Let’s Be Friends! RCS’ “Let’s Be Friends” social skills groups focus
on targeting the social skills necessary to create and maintain positive social relationships with peers within a fun and engaging group setting.
Ready, Set, School! RCS’ “Ready, Set, School” social skills groups focuses on teaching strategies to help students successfully manage the social and behavioral expectations of school. This is a great option for children getting ready to start school for the first time in the fall as well as those already attending school.
