  • iFriend Social Skills Group

    • Does your child have difficulty making friends?

    • Is your child rigid and inflexible, always wanting to do things his or her way?

    • Is he or she shy and timid, often avoiding social interactions?

    • Does your child tend to miss social cues, annoy others, act inappropriately, or use humor at the wrong time?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, iFriend could help your child.

    Children who are 8 to 11 years old and have social development challenges are invited to participate in a weekly social skills group. The goal of the program is for children to become more socially competent, confident and friendly.

    Each session involves an interactive lesson, small group practice activities, and structured play with social coaching.

    Parents will meet separately to discuss strategies to encourage and support skills practice outside of the group sessions.

    Registration is open year round. Groups are filled based on age, clinical presentation and best fit with other group members.
