Social Group at a Glance! by Yoko Phillips

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Time flies…  Our school-year social groups are coming into the last remaining month.  We have enjoyed so many activities together! It is going to be bittersweet when the school year is over.  We are, however, very excited about the upcoming summer groups. 

Summer Social Groups will run from July 10th to August 25th.  There will be many new ideas and activities to enhance students’ social thinking, conversation skills, school readiness, cooperation, and executive functioning skills.  The groups will meet twice a week, for 1.25 hour per group.  It will be a great opportunity to work more intensively on some of the challenging social skills while having fun. 

We are also excited to introduce Puberty Groups this summer.  This program is designed to have our learners engage in a discussion and various fun activities to learn about puberty in a group setting.  The program will cover topics such as what puberty is, what to expect to happen to your body, modesty, and personal safety. Puberty groups will meet once a week for 1.25 hour per group for 7 weeks.
