Social Skills Groups

Metrowest Speech and Language is Center is now pleased to offer Social Skills Groups

These groups run weekly for 90-minutes and are scheduled around a meal time to integrate skills across disciplines and promote natural interactions and opportunities.  Classes will be developed to target individual member needs (e.g, articulation/speech skills, expressive and receptive language/vocabulary skills, executive functioning skills, social pragmatic skills) and interests within the context of a group experience.

 

Is my child ready for a Social Skills Group?

To participate in a group, students must be able to participate and make transitions between activities in a 1:3 or 1:4 group setting with minimal teacher intervention.  Accommodations such as visual supports (visual schedules/token boards), use of Augmentative or Alternative Communication Systems, should be reviewed prior to each session to ensure success.  

Consideration may be given for students who need more support in group to be accepted if 1:1 support can be provided by parent or/caregiver.
