Lego-Based Therapeutic Social Skills Group
Following Dan LeGoff's Lego club, these groups are designed to encourage communication and problems solving skills. One child acts as the "engineer" and describes the instructions, another as the "supplier" finding the correct pieces and the "builder" puts the pieces together. The children change roles weekly allowing them to practice compromise, and understand frustration. Children start by building quick and easy lego kits and work towards harder larger kits.

Under the Pink Umbrella
A drama and activity based social skills group for girls age 8 to 12. This group focuses on building self-esteem and self-confidence and encourages socialization, communication, and conflict resolution skills.

Pre-School Age Therapeutic Social Skills Group
Preschool is the perfect time to intervene intensively for children with social skill difficulties. With a limit of 6 children per group, this group will focus on teaching social skill basics such as eye contact, following directions, associative play, answering questions, and making associations. Group techniques include Applied Behavior Analysis and individual goals for each child in the group. This group is a nice supplement to public preschool special education programs.
