Appropriate social skills are essential in maintaining personal relationships, employment, and for developing friendships that last a lifetime.

Because we believe that social skills are best learned in a social environment, we offer field trips, crafts and recreational activities to teach and reinforce appropriate social skills.

Our instructors employ a wide variety of activities to create an environment for clients to practice skills included in their individual development plans.  Depending upon the individuals’ plan objectives, they may work on skills like asking questions, initiating conversation, staying safe, being polite and considerate, following directions, voice volume, recalling information, and many more.
