We are currently forming social skills groups for children, adolescents and young
adults with moderate problems with socialization and would like to inquire if
you have clients who might benefit from such a program.
I am looking for students who have moderate issues with social skills such as
reciprocal conversation, understanding nonverbal communication, and making and/or
maintaining friendships. At the moment we are soliciting referrals of children
with social problems as a result of ADHD, Social Anxiety/GAD or another mental
health problem, as well as students with Autism Spectrum Disorders who are considered
High Functioning. Each student or young adult will be given an intake interview
to determine the best group for them (an ASD group or a more Heterogeneous group).
We currently have several of groups forming:
High Schoolers (15 years to 18 years old) on Fridays from 4 pm to 5:30 pm
Young Adults (mostly College students, 18+) which would be Fridays from Noon
to 1:30 pm
Older Elementary students (3rd, 4th, and 5th grades) on Wednesdays from 4 pm
to 5:30 pm
Please see the attached flyer for more details and information on price. We would
appreciate your passing this along to anyone you think might be interested. If
you have any questions, please feel free to call me at the office: 410-740-3240.
