Social Skills Groups
New Social Skills Groups in Summer 2014!
LifeScape is offering four new one-week Social Skills Groups, this June-August. The groups meet for four days a week for two hours a day, offering intensive practice in socialization, manners, self-awareness, anger-management, and more. These groups are helpful for children with autism spectrum disorders, but are also beneficial to any child age 4-16 that has trouble with socialization, is very shy, or has trouble fitting in.
Group 1 meets Monday-Thursday, June 23-26. Group 2 meets Monday-Thursday, July 7-10. Group 3 meets Monday-Thursday, July 21-24. Group 4 meets Monday-Thursday, August 4-7. The groups are led by Aimee Deliramich, PhD, Psychology Associate. A social skills group may be for your child is he or she has these difficulties:
- Interacting and playing with peers
- Making new friends
- Being rejected by other kids
- Plays alone
- Becomes angry easily
- Is unable to engage in or initiate a conversation
- Doesn't notice how other perceive him/her
All sessions are held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at LifeScape, 1020 West 18th Street in Sioux Falls. (Formerly Children's Care Rehabilitation Center.) Cost is $350 per child. Insurance coverage does not apply, but some scholarship funds are available.
In September, two ten-week Social Skills Groups will begin. Group 1 will meet Tuesdays for one hour from September 15 to November 15, and Group 2 will meet Thursdays from September 17 to November 19.
