Social Groups / Supervised "Play Dates"- Building social success, self-confidence and interacting with peers and others in a fun setting. Carole can facilitate success by helping you organize an intimate group of 2-3 children who are able to practice together in a smaller world. In creating small successful interactions, each child is able to increase self-esteem and learn the skills and behaviors necessary to carry over into school, family and other settings. Each child is individually placed so that each of their talents, challenges and needs will complement each other in their peer groups. Groups/Play dates are generally once to twice weekly for up to 75 minutes.
