Social Skills

Our Program Coordinator will assess your child's skill levels and develop appropriate milestone goals in the following areas:


Children are assessed at the beginning of the year using the Verbal Behavior Milestone Assessment and Placement Guide (VB-MAPP). Goals are developed based on your child’s unique and individual needs. Skills are taught in a group setting.


During group therapy, children will work on mastering the following skills independently:

  • Engage in parallel play

  • Attend in a group setting for various activities

  • Respond to directions from peers

  • Respond to the requests of peers

  • Initiate greetings to peers

  • Appropriately transition between activities

  • Participate in interactive games

  • Acknowledge an interaction by others by giving an appropriate response

  • Cooperate with peers in small group settings (i.e. share materials, allow peers to share different thoughts)

  • Engage in appropriate turn-taking skills by attending to peer's turn and waiting for own turn

  • Engage in conversational turn-taking with others across

Prerequisite Skills 

Our program is designed for children who demonstrate the following behaviors: 

  • Attending in a small group for at least 10 minutes

  • Refrains from engaging in interfering behaviors (i.e. elopement, screaming, crying, aggression, etc.)

  • Is able to follow simple one step instructions

  • Can communicate with at least 15 words (verbally or with communication device)

  • The child does not need to be toiled trained for our program

If your child doesn't meet these prerequisite skills or they require individual support, then they will be removed from this setting and offered 1:1 ABA Therapy, if available.
