New Friends Social Skills Group


Wednesday’s 4:00pm-4:45pm

2x a month | Begins September 

Ages 11-14

The Autism Alliance in partnership with Successfully Social New England is offering A fun, interactive and dynamic social group to help kids improve upon their self-image, identify their strengths and challenges, and develop their personal toolbox of strategies to increase their confidence and be able to successfully navigate the social world. This group is designed for kids in grades 7-10 who struggle socially. Kids who can benefit from this group are those with solid language skills who have difficulty noticing social cues such as facial expression and body language and those who have difficulty listening/focusing or working in a group. This year we are increasing the group to 45 minutes to include a "15-minute open chat" at the end (last 15 min) where kids could stay logged on to group to share something with us or they could jump off if they needed to. This program is facilitated by Coach Allison H. Marean, M.Ed., CLYL and Allison Daigle, CTRS.
