Social Skills Programs

GBS Social Skills Program

Our social skills program is for children ages 6-12 with autism who need a social skills refresher or in need of some lessons to help develop social skills. This 8–12-week program will be held in spring, fall and summer, pending enrollment.

This program will include instructional videos, role play, group activities and games.

Your child will practice a variety of social skills in a fun, exciting environment with peers.

All activities are guided by GBS highly trained technicians. Parents/caregivers are provided homework weekly to generalize skills at home and to build social interactions.

Social skills programs are typically held on weekends during the school year, and from 2:30-4:30 in the summer.

A minimum of 4 students will need to be enrolled for the program to be run each semester. Children entering the social skills program will be required to have basic communication skills to interact with peers, some attending skills for lessons, independently toilet, and will not have any significant behavioral issues such as aggression, SIB, or other behaviors that could be dangerous to peers or interfere with learning.
