Our social clubs are designed to enlighten the way kids act and react in society. They gain the skills and confidence to become "stars" among peers and within the community.
We offer a fun, relaxed setting that promotes a safe and loving environment for kids ages 2-11 to practice their interactive skills. Each group is facilitated by a licensed and certified therapist trained in social skill development. SociaLights Clubs target four specific relation-forming skill sets:
Conversational: Initiating, maintaining, listening and engaging in conversation
Problem Solving: Identifying areas of difficulty, then developing and executing a plan to achieve goals
Perspective Taking: Recognizing and relating to others’ feelings, and using cues to help guide behaviors
Cooperative Play: Respecting others’ opinions and differences and acting accordingly in unexpected situations
Our SociaLights Club is structured into four age-level* groups and designed to take kids on a social interaction journey that allows them to master and "graduate" on to the next age level, offering more developmentally complex social skills sets.
