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....?

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.

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.
