Child Social Skills Groups
Social Skills: Child Group (5 and up)
LittleStar’s social skills group for children is a 14-week social skills intervention for school-age children who are interested in learning how to make and keep friends. During each group session, the children are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills in session during socialization activities. Skills include back-and forth conversation, finding common interests, sportsmanship, sharing, and handling disagreements. Parents attend three separate sessions throughout the course of group treatment and are taught how to assist their children in making and keeping friends. Parents will provide feedback through coaching during weekly socialization homework assignments and will help the children use their learned skills to foster new relationships. Social skills group may be appropriate for children with autism spectrum disorder. Parent participation is required.
