Social Skills Group
Buckhead Speech Specialists offers a weekly social skills group to help clients improve relationships, deal with emotions, and improve problem-solving skills. Because language is used to form relationships, many clients with language disorders often show weaknesses in social skills. This group focuses on building friendships and working on social skills needed for both home and school life.
Clients will learn how to appropriately respond in a variety of stressful social situations. Each week, a different topic is addressed through story time, play with friends, arts and crafts, cooking, etc. Topics include: turn-taking, controlling anger, and flexibility, etc. Children are given as much support as they need in a small-group setting where friendships are formed.
