The Preschool Playskills group is a therapeutic approach to social development. The group is a fun, interactive program focused on building skills in the areas of language, play and social development. It is designed to develop play skills, while eliciting age-appropriate language through natural opportunities for social interactions. Children will be engaged in a variety of adult and child directed activities, in order to develop language, articulation and social skills. These skills include, but are not limited to, joint attention, circle-time and waiting, turn-taking, sharing, and pairing language with nonverbal social skills.
Ages 4-5 || Wednesdays 12:30-1:15pm
This social skills group focuses on building social relationships with children who just started or are about to enter school. This group is appropriate for children who are able to carry on brief back and forth conversations. Conversation maintenance and collaborative play skills are addressed, while developing peer relationships. There will be a focus on improving attention to peers, good listening skills, turn-taking, social language and strategies for building friendships—all during lunch & snack time!

Lessons are organized into categories that include friendship, perspective taking, self-monitoring, being part of a group, effective communication, making plans to be with others, problem solving, and more. Practical life skills will be addressed through monthly field trips into the community.
