"At the Movies” is a group program that uses movies to enhance social and
communication skills. Students increase their social skills by
watching, analyzing, and discussing conversations and social situations
within movies. We will focus on the themes of empathy, perspective
taking, making inferences, and self-control. Emphasis will also be placed on understanding emotions, tone of voice, and body language. This group is intended for middle and high school students with
social skills needs and/or high functioning autism spectrum disorders. Groups are comprised of 3-5
students, and led by a certified school psychologist.
The Social Strategy Group is a ten week program designed for young adults (ages 21+ years old) with a variety of social challenges such as establishing friendships, reading nonverbal cues, conversing with others, and overcoming obstacles to dating. The group is appropriate for those individuals with autism spectrum disorder, nonverbal learning disability, and social anxiety.
