Social Skills Groups for Tweens and Teens

A social skills group provides social tools that make the process of forging healthy social connections less stressful and more manageable. Having a child who struggles to connect socially with peers can be overwhelming and difficult.

As a parent, it can be hard to understand your child’s experiences and provide advice on managing and navigating a social map most people find implicit. Your child may find social situations difficult and stressful, or may sometimes need to guess how to best make social connections with peers or in other situations, such as with a teacher or within the community.

You also strive to help your child navigate socially, and do your best with making social situations more accessible for your child.

Yet why do it alone? A social group can support your child by providing social skills, communication tools, plus ongoing opportunities for successful social outcomes.
