Social Skills Playgroup for Elementary Schoolers on the Autism Spectrum

Youngsters with an autism spectrum disorder often need a little extra guidance to develop age appropriate ability to manage emotions, initiate activities, and form friendships with their peers. A therapeutic playgroup provides a safe space for learning new skills, trying them out, and forming friendships with others who have similar challenges. Through structured activities and creative play, children who participate will learn:

  • The “hidden rules” of common social situations

  • Better skills for managing social anxiety

  • How to maintain their own boundaries, and respect those of others

  • How to handle setbacks and disappointments

  • Improved self-esteem

Led by Dr. Trent Everett P.H.D. and Sarah Scott, LPC-Intern.

Saturdays from 10 AM - 11 AM starting

September 26th through November 14th
