Social Skills Counseling

Social Skills Program:

Social Skills Therapy at ASG is a unique and innovative treatment model that utilizes research based techniques to improve children and adolescents’ social functioning. Therapy focuses on teaching new skills, fostering independence with emerging skills, and creating a socially confident child! When enrolled in Social Skills Therapy, your child will participate in an assessment that helps identify his/her unique strengths and areas for growth. After the assessment, your child will be paired with a therapist and 1-3 similarly aged peer volunteers. An individualized treatment plan will be created that utilizes your child’s areas of strengths to help build new skills in areas related to weaknesses identified in the assessment.

Although every client's treatment plan is unique, here is a list of common skill areas targeted in Social Skills Therapy:

  • Greetings

  • Turn-Taking
  • Eye Contact

  • Conflict Resolution
