Social Skills Group

This group follows the format of the social skills groups that are offered throughout the rest of the year, but in a condensed time frame.

Lessons and hands on activities help participants practice self-reflection, self-management, and social skills. This group provides a multidisciplinary approach and is led by Patrick Ethel-King Ph.D and is co-facilitated with occupational or speech therapy staff.This group may be covered by insurance and requires an initial assessment for participants new to the clinic.
