Event Details

Adolescent Social Skills Class Synopsis

1. Our program is designed to increase your child’s social-cognitive skills in the classroom and the community. As a curriculum and community oriented class, we will use a combination of general education topics and social skills training to help make each student a competent communicator. The goal is to help each child improve self confidence and become a more effective communicator.

The teaching concepts will include:

·          “Learning how to learn” through the use of structured teaching, multisensory learning, strategies, modeling, role playing, and coaching.

·         Community service in schools, social media, music, movies, games, and books. 

·         Reducing group barriers                                          

·         Socially appropriate activities for age and ability levels

·         Active learning in a safe environment

·         Curriculums covered: math, science, social studies, and language arts

3. Students will:

1.     Learn direct social/communication strategies

2.     Learn why social skills and communication are important

3.     Practice new strategies in a safe environment

4.     Use new strategies with the help of daily reminders...that right I said daily...Did I mention daily?

5.     Did I mention have fun?


 Program Objectives

 •A positive, curriculum, and community oriented program for students and families impacted by language, communication, and/or sensory difficulties
•Therapy process designed to improve each child’s communication abilities toward age-appropriate levels
•Educational support to provide literacy, academic, and social concepts to promote academic and community success

 Content of Media: Social Networking, Games, Music, Movies, and Books.

 Each class will have time devoted to one form of media that is interesting to them. It is our goal to teach appropriate and safe social skills to each student in natural environments so please understand that this time will be used to generalize/practice skills taught earlier in the day, week, and month. This time will allow for many teachable moments to help students practice appropriate communication.

Please communicate with other parents and the SLP teaching your class if the content of the media is a concern. The SLP teaching your class will send a newsletter with future topics from social media, games, music, movies, and books to prevent any complications. He or she will use good judgment when presenting material to adolescent children.

Staff, Ratios & Class Caps
Each class is taught by a certified SLP- and only the best will do!  The class will cap at 10 students per class. An extra class may be opened if registration exceeds the cap.
