Social Skills Groups
Rising K-2nd graders
Mondays & Wednesdays, 3:30-5pm
Throughout each group, children will learn about concepts such as: thinking thoughts and feeling feelings, the group plan, thinking with your eyes, body in group, and whole body listening. Using these concepts, children will refine their "Social Detective" skills by learning about hidden rules and unexpected behaviors, making smart guesses, recognizing flexible and stuck thinking, determining the size of the problem, and sharing an imagination.
They will learn how to recognize their “zone”of regulation and incorporate strategies and tools to stay in a zone or move from one zone to another, including calming techniques, cognitive strategies, and sensory supports.
Children will learn how to read others' facial expressions and recognize a broader range of emotions, develop perspective about how others see and react to their behavior, gain insight into events that trigger their less regulated states, and determine when and how to use tools and problem solving skills.
To ensure every child benefits, groups are limited to six children.
