Social Skills Groups

Social Skills I: Social Scouts

Social Scouts is Spectrum’s early learning social skills group.  Students receive instruction in beginning social skills including parallel and cooperative play, turn taking, eye contact, greetings, and group learning behaviors. Social skills concepts are introduced and reinforced through both whole-group and paired instruction, children’s stories, videos, songs, and interactive activities (games, art projects, imaginative play, etc.) that reinforce the skill that is currently being targeted.

 

The format of the group is adapted based on the individual needs of the students in that group.  Students talk, laugh, learn, and play together in structured activities.  

Prerequisite skills include:  

  • Language skills equivalent to that of a nuerotypical 4-year-old a

  • absence of significant negative/disruptive behaviors.

Social Skills 2: Social Adventurers

Social Skills Schedule

Groups meet multiple time a week during our after-school therapy session and typically run  from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.

STC's directors and BCBAs will work together to determine the best possible fit for your child

Social Adventurers is Spectrum’s intermediate social skills group.  Students receive whole-group instruction on social themes through the use of cooperative play, stories, videos, and interactive activities that reinforce the skill that is currently being targeted. This group also targets group learning, following group instructions, independence in classroom routines, and making predictions about social situations.  Students talk, laugh, learn, and play together in both structured and unstructured activities including building, crafting, game-playing, and conversation.

 

Depending on the individual needs of the students and as the group advances, advanced social skills instruction in reading and responding to non-verbal social cues, making social predictions, understanding other people’s perspectives, and problem solving are also explored.  The format of the group is adapted based on the individual needs of the students in that group. Students talk, laugh, learn, and play together in both structured and unstructured activities including building, crafting, game-playing, and conversation.
