Behavior Therapy? Vs Social Skills Groups

Behavior Therapy? Vs Social Skills Groups

Social Skills group have not worked for Daniel, b/c he doesn't absorb the info. Should I look into 1:1 behavior therapy to help him with social skill and anger management? I dunno, we're a little "therapy drunk" and not sure it's worth the effort/cost to run around....?

Parents, What Do You Want In A Social Skills Art Therapy Group?

Parents, What Do You Want In A Social Skills Art Therapy Group?

I'm an art therapist and ABA therapist and am organizing a social skills and art therapy group for kids on the spectrum here in New Orleans. The goal is to foster self-expression, self-regulation and social skills through group creative projects. As parents, what would you want to see in such a group? What qualities do you look for when signing up your child for activities and therapies?

How Do I Convince My Son That He Needs Social Skills Help From The Special Education Team At His School?

How Do I Convince My Son That He Needs Social Skills Help From The Special Education Team At His School?

My 12 year old son has realized that he is different than the other kids at his public school, but does not want any of the other kids to know that he needs special help. He is socially lacking in some areas and would really benefit from social skills training but refuses to go to the special ed rooms or have anything to do with the special ed teachers/staff because he does not want to be associated in any way… read more

Has ABA or floor time therapy helped anyone? What about a social skills group? I'm in Utah and am wondering if there are any services here that anyone has found helpful. Especially if it's free or cheap :) My daughter is 4 so she's still in preschool.

Social Skill Groups In Mass

Social Skill Groups In Mass

My son is 5 and is in PreK full time. His biggest goal for his IEP this year is social skill, specifically with peers. His school does not offer social skills (other than what they do within the class), so we are trying to find something either after school for him or on Saturdays. Anyone in Mass know of any groups or places? Anything I have come across has been for kids older than 6 and up.
