Social Skills Groups
I am currently offering all in-person social-emotional learning groups for kids in Grades K-8 who experience mild social challenges. The programs meet at my farmhouse in Boxborough, MA, offering us the opportunity to be outside as well as inside our converted garage group space.
My unique social coaching approach provides the most natural peer and social setting possible for kids to learn and practice in. The social groups look like any typical recess or after-school activity but offer extra layers of support, coaching, and a social safety net to foster social success. My staff and I are the people that you wish were at every recess, at every school, every day.
This purposeful approach to incidental teaching has assisted many children in gaining social confidence, increasing social intelligence, finding social success, and generalizing their social learning to other settings.
Many participants do not have a documented diagnosis and are here for guidance on friendship skills. However, children who have been identified as having profiles including ADD/ADHD, Aspergers, Non-Verbal Learning Disorders, Executive Function Challenges, or Social Anxiety are welcomed. I am always more than happy to discuss your child’s individual social support needs with you to determine if a social coaching program is a good fit.
Programs are for ages 5-14. Children must have good receptive and expressive language skills and be able to participate safely in a group of 12-16 peers with a 1:4 staff/participant ratio. Groups are open-enrollment if space is available. Current monthly tuition rates are $240 (cash) or $260 (check/Venmo/Zelle). I do not process credit cards. I am happy to provide a receipt to use for reimbursement if a family has a Flexible Spending Account through an employer.
Scheduled groups and current age grouping for spring 2023 are:
Mondays 4:30-5:45 PM – Middle School
Tuesdays 4:30-5:45 PM – Grades K-3
