What Good Is Having 
A Skill If You Don't Use It?
To Help Maximize Your child's social success, each social survival group is paired with a corresponding parent's group that meets simultaneously in an adjacent room. 
In that companion group parents will:
  • Review the Skills Their Child is Learning
  • Develop a Common Social Skills Language to Aid in Coaching their Child
  • Troubleshoot issues in the Generalization of Skills to Daily Life
  • Learn Simple Strategies to help their child decrease social anxiety & increase social confidence and success.
