East Side Social can put together a team of behavior therapists to implement programming developed to address academic and behavior goals in the home, school and community settings.
We work to support social skills development of children and teens of all abilities. We use interactive lessons, group activities, games, role-playing and community-based activities to teach and practice appropriate peer interactions. Groups are composed of 4 – 6 individuals and are arranged by age and current skill sets. Each group meets for 1 hour per week for a 6-week session. Sample topics include: cooperative play, game playing skills; joint attention; conversation; developing leisure skills; self-management of behavior.
Each six week session follows a reoccurring theme. Sample themes include:
- Identifying and Responding to the Emotions of Others / Empathy
- Establishing and Maintaining Friendships
- Idioms and Language Play
- Initiating and Maintaining Conversation
- Understanding the Hidden Curriculum
- Hygiene and Self Care
- Developing Leisure Skills
- Responding to Bullying
Across all six sessions basic social skills will be taught. Sample social skill targets include:
- Joint Attention
- Initiation and Maintenance of Peer Interactions
- Appropriate Greetings
- Giving and Receiving Compliments
- Following Group Direction
- Developing Game Playing Skills and Being a Good Sport
- Cooperative Play
East Side Social provides independent parent training to families and caregivers to effectively identify goals, manage behavior problems and increase independence. Sessions are designed to teach families and caregivers how to teach, generalize and maintain skills taught in the child’s natural environment. Parent Training sessions may be held in the family’s home and/or community setting and session length may vary dependent on need.
