We are now enrolling for our next Social Skills Group in our Paradise Valley office, starting on Saturday, June 1st, and meeting weekly on Saturdays through August 24th. There will be no session on July 7th. We are enrolling for ages 3 to 10.
Please note: the deadline to enroll is April 30, 2019. All families must confirm their enrollment for the session, even if they have participated in prior sessions.
Social Play: 9:00am – 11:00am
During the preschool years, children expand from parallel play to social play. Social play is when peers start to build ideas off of one another, play games, learn turn-taking, and sharing. This cooperative playgroup contrives opportunities to learn each of these skills and ensures your child will be reinforced for their efforts.
Self-Awareness: 11:30am – 1:30pm
Early social skills emerge at different rates among all young children. These critical skills set the stage for future success in navigating the nuances of social interaction. This group will focus on critical early social skills including appropriate play, greeting others, and initiating meaningful play interactions.
Friendship: 11:30am – 1:30pm
Cooperation and teamwork are critical to success in all social environments. The skills needed to successfully cooperate and work as a team do not always come easily. It can be challenging to learn to listen to the desires of others, compromise, and learn when to lead or follow. This group will focus on the various skills needed to be successful in groups and cooperate with others.
The cost for the 12-week session is $1,100. Alternatively, we are in-network with Aetna, BCBS, Cigna, and UnitedHealthcare and accept payment from insurance, subject to insurance authorization. We also accept the Empowerment Scholarship. The sessions will begin with a pre-assessment to determine goals for each child and conclude with an assessment of progress made against those goals.
