Social Skills Group (SCIP)

Our social skills program is a learning program that uses video modeling, socially valid dialog, original characters, and Hollywood-movie quality animation.  We cater our program for children with adjustment challenges such as Autism, ADHD, Asperger’s and other social-emotional deficits. Children find our social skills program fun and engaging as they use these skills outside of the clinic.  Our vision is to improve social skills and  reduce the likelihood of a child growing up and becoming a statistic.

What are the ages of the groups? The ages of children enrolled vary. Traditionally, we serve children aged 6 through 17.  Group enrollment is based on chronological age and social skills level. The elementary school aged group serves children 6 through 8, the school aged group serves adolescents 9 through 12 and the teen group serves teens aged 13 through 17.

Are parents encouraged to be involved? Yes, we offer parent training classes that run concurrently with the social skills program.

How much does the program cost? This is a fee for service program.  Generally, self pay prices run between $70.00 per child and $40.00 for parents, weekly total $110.00.  First assessment meeting with therapist is roughly $150.00. **All prices are subject to change without notice.**

How often do groups meet? All groups meet at the Behavioral Health & Family Services.  Depending on your child’s placement, groups meet for approximately 24 weeks on Tuesday from 4 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. or Saturdays from 12 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.  Groups will not be held on holidays.

Does my child need a specific diagnosis? No.  Your child does not need to have a specific diagnosis though many children and teens in our groups do have diagnoses of high functioning autism, PDD-NOS, Asperger Syndrome and ADHD.

Is there a waitlist? Yes. Families that complete and return an intake are placed on our waitlist.  Please note, being on the waitlist does not guarantee placement into the program. Group enrollment is based on chronological age and social skills level. The results of a required intake interview are used to form well-balanced and compatible groups with similar verbal abilities and diagnostic profiles.
