Has your child been identified by daycare workers or teachers as lacking social skills? Does your child tend to play by themselves or struggle to initiate play with others? Is there trouble taking turns or sharing with siblings or other peers?
For all children, ages 5-8 is a critical developmental stage to work through understanding and using social skills to build their own relationships.
In these social skills groups, our goal is both educate on social skills, help each child practice these skills during group and allow a child to experience what healthy relationship building looks like.
MCFT now uses the Social Express Curriculum! Social Express uses research-based lessons allow users to interactively work through real-life situations. Our unique animated programs help drive learning and success in and out of the classroom.
We focus on 6 developmentally-based, essential social skills:
- feelings identification
- listening skills
- sharing/ taking turns
- impulse control
Each group runs for 8 sessions and will include a parent intake session as well as a final parent recommendation session.
Group rates vary but are reduced from normal individual sessions.
For more on what is normal developmentally, check out this social/ emotional developmental milestones chart .
