Social Skills Groups
Give your child the best opportunities with scientifically proven ABA learning strategies

Social Skills Groups

Children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder often struggle with the skills that are required in social settings. Our social skills groups are designed to give children a better understanding of the skills they struggle with as well as how they can use them. Unlike our one-on-one therapy, the group dynamic allows our staff to provide interaction between multiple people in a controlled and healthy environment.

ASD children often will not respond to cues in social settings, making everything from simple greetings to other’s feelings difficult to understand. Our social skills groups help to teach children basic social rules such as politeness as well as other social expectations. The children learn how to spot cues and apply them at home and at school.

Our staff and parents help to create a behavioral assessment that identifies a child’s behavioral problems within different social settings. A treatment plan is created that can then be applied in the social skills groups in a fun way that helps to keep the child focused as they learn to spot social cues. The social skill groups allow children to practice what they have learned while providing staff members with a chance to observe them.

Our staff uses methods such as differential reinforcement to stimulate proper social responses. By reinforcing appropriate responses and removing inappropriate responses to behavior, children are slowly encouraged to perform the appropriate behavior. Applying this reinforcement in a group setting is needed to stimulate learning in setting with multiple participants.

Social stories are another form of interaction within the social group setting. Staff and parents act as authors who exchange information with ASD children through a formulated process. Role-playing a social scenario with children can be a fun way to learn social cues and proper responses in a group setting. Often, these stories contain simple scenarios and are kept to shorter lengths.

Behavioral scripts and modeling can also be used to stimulate interest while teaching valuable social interactions. Special scripts created for an individual child’s needs can also be used in our social skill groups that address a specific behavior that is being exhibited outside of the group sessions.

Step 3: Assessment
The next step is to assess your child’s skill level, which is necessary to guide the development of an individualized Autism treatment plan. The assessment will be conducted by a licensed Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and will include the use of various assessment tools. Typically, assessments are conducted in the home setting. However, arrangements can be made to conduct the assessment in an area that best suits your family’s needs.

Step 4: Therapy
Through assessment in everyday situations such as home and school, behaviors are targeted and a detailed therapy plan is developed. Throughout the treatment, data is recorded and analyzed in order to show progress of meaningful change and to evaluate, modify, and refine treatment for the most socially significant outcomes.
