Encouraging Socializing
Summer 2018 
Groups Include:

Social Skills: Stage 1 (children ages 3 to 5)

This is the first step to learning social interaction, communication skills, sensory exploration and regulation. Our sessions will include arts and crafts, fine and gross motor play, games, pretend play and more. Children will be learning important skills to be safe and have fun while playing and socializing.

Social Skills: Stage 2 (children ages 5 to 8)

This is the second step to learning the skills to play, talk and interact with peers in many contexts. One of the best ways to learn these skills is through facilitated play. Children will interact with peers during a variety of activities, including arts and crafts,games, music and pretend play. Practitioners will encourage and coach children through various activities, keeping them engaged. Great for 5 year olds who have attended Kindergarten during the 2017-2018 school year.

Social Skills: Stage 3 (children ages 9 to 12)

This is the third step to learn the skills needed for upper-elementary and middle school. At this level, play becomes more sophisticated and is centered on favorite interests. Components of this group will be expanding interests, establishing common ground, making friends and active games. Pop culture topics, such as current books and movies, will be discussed.
Social Skills: Stage 4 (children ages 13-18)

This is the fourth stage is an opportunity for teens to expand their conversational skill and explore team-building skills. The teens will be encouraged to work in groups or pairs to complete tasks. While doing so, they improve their listening skills, following and giving directions, problem solving, and conversing. Many fun activities will be completed during their time together.
