Group Social Skills Training
Fraser Group Social Skills Training helps children and teens develop and use appropriate social skills and coping strategies to build relationships with peers. The program maximizes each individual's developmental potential while improving functioning at home, school, and in the community.
Group Social Skills Training serves children, teens and young adults, ages 2-21, identified through a diagnostic assessment by a licensed mental health professional. To participate, individuals need a primary medical diagnosis on the autism spectrum without a secondary diagnosis of significant cognitive impairment, the ability to participate in groups without one-on-one support, and no aggressive behaviors.
The Individual Treatment Plan may include goals such as:
- Improving social skills including social interactions and conflict resolution
- Increasing effective communication skills
- Promoting independence in adaptive functioning
- Developing organizational skills
- Developing self-management skills related to the child’s disorder, including problem solving, decision making, coping strategies, appropriate boundaries;
- Developing parenting skills to help children achieve goals through group and individual parent meetings
