Social Skills Program
Age 3.5 to 12 years

Our Social Skills Program is a specialized social and life skills program created for children and growing young adults with neurodiversity. Particularly for children with autism spectrum disorders, generalized anxiety disorders, and other developmental and emotional health differences, it is difficult to navigate the social environments of everyday. Based on techniques used in evidence-based clinical practice, our Social Skills Program is a safe place to introduce and support children on their journey through the social world of today.

 

Children will have the chance to explore their social environment in large and small groups of peers. Staff will support children in learning and practicing social and life skills to navigate their day-to-day world. Skill building activities such as shared enjoyment, exchanging and sharing items, communication, play, and self-identity are built into the daily schedule.

Learning Objectives

Enrollment includes individualized learning objectives for each student. All students will undergo a simple evaluation to determine their social and life (independent) skills to determine the right skills to develop over the 12-week program. Students will have primary and secondary goals as per their learning plan. Primary goals will be the focus within their program.

Caregivers will choose one goal each from the following four categories: Social Skills, Motor Skills, Functional Skills, Academic Skills.

Our Social Skills Specialists will compare your preference to the child’s skill level within the beginning evaluation. Caregivers will be given Positive Notes home to better understand the progress of the student in each session. Caregivers are encouraged to engage, participate, and update the Social Specialist in areas of concern or growth with the student. Students will receive an Achievement Certificate at the end of 12 weeks along with a written report of steps toward generalization.

 Toddlers n' Training Program
Age 20 months to 3.5 years 

Toddlers n' Training is the perfect introduction to Think Tank Therapy for our younger friends. This starter program is ideal for those currently seeking a diagnosis, or those who have never been in a therapy program before. The focus is fun and play, while our students learn the basics of following the routines and expectations of our group therapy program.

Learning Objectives

Students will transition every 30 minutes as it is important for children to learn routines and it keeps our students focused and engaged. Students will work towards accomplishing goals such as following simple routines and transitions (such as participating in circle time, story time and music time), tolerating peers, and staying within a group. Practical life skills will also be a focus, including cleaning up, washing hands and opening lunch containers. Each child's program will be individualized based on their current skill level for each goal.

Upon completing the 12 week block, your child will be observed by our BCBA, SLP and OT to see if they are equipped with the tools they will need to be successful in our therapy programs. Families will receive a report at the  discussing their child's progress made in the program.
