Social Skills Groups

New Social Skills Groups start in March 2014!

Children's Care is offering three new 10-week Social Skills Groups beginning in March 2014. These groups are helpful for children with autism spectrum disorders, but are also beneficial to any child ages 4-16 that has trouble with socialization, is very shy, or has trouble fitting in.  

Group 1 meets Mondays, March 24-May 26; Group 2 meets Tuesdays, March 25-May 27; and Group 3 meets Thursdays, March 27-May 29. Children are grouped by age. 

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

  • 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 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Children's Care Rehabilitation Center at 1020 West 18th Street in Sioux Falls.  Cost is $350 per child. Insurance coverage does not apply, but some scholarship funds are available. For details or to register, call Carla at (605) 444-9700.

 

"What I like most about my job is the direct care with the children each day. The children are so special and to be able to help them and take care of their needs is very rewarding."
