RCS Social Skills Summer Program starting July 9th!
Registration Deadline: May 11th
Our Early Childhood Division is excited to offer a 6-week (12 session) social skills program this summer for children with autism between the ages of 3-6 years old in our new office in Woburn! Children receive high quality ABA therapy within a group setting with up to 6 peers of similar ages, ability and communication styles. Sessions are held twice a week for 1.5 hours and are led by a BCBA and behavior therapist.
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 this summer include:
Let’s Play Together! RCS’ “Let’s Play Together” Social Skills Groups focus on teaching developmentally appropriate play skills within a fun and engaging group setting using research-based ABA teaching procedures.
Let’s Be Friends! RCS’ “Let’s Be Friends” social skills group focuses on targeting the social skills necessary to create and maintain positive social relationships with peers.
Ready, Set, School! RCS’ “Ready, Set, School” social skills group 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.
