UCLA PEERS SOCIAL SKILLS GROUP for ADOLESCENTS CERTIFIED
Some kids learn to say “hello” and “thank you” and to take turns while playing by watching others. But kids with learning and attention issues might not pick up on common social interactions simply through observation. If your child struggles with social skills, a social skills group could help.
Social skills include far more than the ability to communicate with other people. They’re crucial to making friends, succeeding in school and, later in life, getting and keeping a job.
During social skills class,
children can learn important skills that they’ll use the rest of their lives. This includes learning how to:
Start a conversation
Respond to others
Maintain a conversation
Share and take turns
Ask for help
