Social Skills Training

We offer three levels of social skills training under the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. We will complete an assessment for current strengths and opportunities with social contracting.

For our earlier learners, we offer the Little Friends’ Social Club; for the intermediate social player, we offer the Get-Ready Crew; and for the advanced social situation master-in-training, we offer the Fun Bunch.

AT EMERALD CITY CLINIC

We believe in…

… applying data-based decision making and positive reinforcement.

… using evidence / research-based strategies to support the development and learning process.

… celebrating each child’s individuality, and their improvements along the way.

… allowing your child to have fun, to flourish, and to feel empowered as an effective self-agent.

In addition to having an excellent staff, we believe in life-long, engaged learning. Our ideal location has access to many fine arts opportunities and chances to give back to the community.
