Group Programs

Social Skills Groups (Ages 8 - 11 and 11 - 14)

CSI offers weekly social skills groups for 8 week sessions multiple times throughout the school year. Each group has 4 to 6 children in the same age range with most groups being single gender. These programs are designed for children with age-appropriate cognitive functioning who are experiencing difficulty in peer relationships. Topics covered include learning to listen, recognizing body language, improving conversational skills, recognizing and expressing feelings appropriately, demonstrating self–control, utilizing relaxation techniques, thinking positively, handling teasing, and solving conflicts. Each group is staffed by two licensed and/or school-certified psychologists.
