"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.
