Social Skills (3-12 years): Play-based curriculum to learn at the child's current ability level.  In addition, age and interest plays a role in group placement.  Tools for improving social skills (i.e.: sharing, turn taking, joining a group, introducing oneself, greeting others, maintaining appropriate eye contact, etc.), affective behaviors (when hugs/affection are appropriate), verbal communication (i.e.: expressing oneself, listening, verifying, considering the other person), and nonverbal communication (i.e.: body language, gestures, etc.) will be the focus of the groups.
