Social Skills Groups for School Age Children

 

Social skills groups are held each term for children with autism, ADHD, social anxiety or other relevant concerns. Justine specialises in working with school age children, with current groups in the 1-2,  3-4 and 5-6 grade level groups. Justine provides feedback each week to parents along with reference material to support home follow up. This facilitates generalisation of skills to the home setting.

 

Children are carefully matched with others of like development and need. Please enquire about current availability of places through the Contact page.
