Social Skills Groups for Tweens and Teens
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.
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.
