The Social Skills groups are designed for children and adolescents that have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, or Behavior Disorder. The group will utilize art and play therapy during the 6-8 week session. Art and play therapy will give the children an opportunity to gain understanding and develop skills to cope with life’s difficulties. During the group the children will utilize art as a way of communicating feelings. The children will participate in group art therapy activities as a way for team building and practicing new skills. After each activity there will be time to share and process their art which will allow them to gain insight about each topic. Group will also offer opportunities for the therapist to mediate difficult situations between group members. The mediation will allow for awareness and development of new skills.
Topics will include:
• Following Directions
• Team Building
• Resolving conflicts
• Problem solving
• Giving compliments
• And more!
