Social Skills Therapy
Becoming a socially competent human means understanding that other people have thoughts and feelings that are often different from our own. It requires a "theory of mind" - being able to think about things from someone else's perspective. We offer in-depth social communication evaluations and treatment to help students grow their competencies in understanding the social world.
Who Benefits from Social Learning Therapy?
Students or adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Executive Functioning Disorders.
Therapy and Evaluations
Therapy and evaluations for social communication are provided in a clinic-based setting. At times, we may choose to meet in a designated community setting to work on skills in a client's natural environment and work on the generalization of skills.
If your child is currently in an IEP, we work to support your child's goals while also giving them the individualized therapy needed to make progress.
Our practice uses the Social Thinking Curriculum designed by Michelle Garcia Winner, M.A., CCC-SLP. We address challenges such as weak perspective taking, flexible thinking, self-regulation, expected and unexpected behavior, conversational skills, peer interactions, self-advocacy skills, interacting with authority figures, and so much more.
We spend time creating an environment where our clients feel safe and free to express themselves. We work to develop an understanding and acceptance of neurodiversity. Through building a solid connection and trusting relationship, we work to develop self-awareness, self-esteem, and help our clients celebrate their unique strengths and personalities.
