Encourage the Development of Social Learning and Self-Regulation
Our lessons, whether in a group or individual setting, are driven by the needs of our clients. We take a comprehensive look at each client’s social cognitive needs as well as their age and developmental level and develop lessons specific to them. Here are just some of what students learn at our clinic:
- To be part of a group
- To observe and interpret social expectations
- How social expectations change with age and context
- To monitor their body language and proximity to others
- To recognize impulses and learn self-control
- To become more flexible thinkers
- To deal with anxiety and learn to regulate big emotions
- Social problem solving
- To communicate more effectively and appropriately self-advocate
- The four steps of perspective taking
- How one’s behaviors impact the feelings of those around them
- Planning and organizational skills
- and much more

Group size is generally between 2-4 participants. The group consists of approximately 50 minutes of direct therapy for the students and 10 minutes of parent education each week. Our clinical staff goes above and beyond in coordinating the group placements, however, on some occasions students’ initial placements are not successful. We will coordinate with you in this event.

Consultation may take the form of parent requested special time to meet with them to discuss their child, once we have started to see them regularly in the clinic. We may also attend IEP or other meetings, engage in parent requested school observations, write small reports based on what we have learned from the child during our treatment sessions, work with siblings, etc. Travel to and from meetings will be billed at the hourly consultation rate. Telephone, email and any other consultation requested by parents to discuss the client with other care providers will be billed in 15-minute increments.
