Social Skills

Group Instruction

Learning social skills can be exciting and fun! In small groups (3-6), children participate in enjoyable activities while also learning about how to interact with others. Using the principles of ABA and evidence-based procedures, we teach, practice, and reinforce appropriate social behavior.
