Social Skills Seminar

The Center for Autism and Related Disorders, Inc. (CARD), will conduct a Social Skills Group session on September 12, 2011 through October 10, 2011 from 4 pm – 5 pm at the CARD Headquarters’ Assessment Center, located on 19019 Ventura Boulevard, Suite 100 in Tarzana, California. The Social Skills Group session costs $20 per child ages 10 to 12 years with Asperger’s and other mild social deficits and for the month of September, CARD is also adding sessions to a younger group.

“We received such positive feedback from parents during our last Social Skills Group session and decided not to only continue the sessions but increase them with a new age group,’ says Evelin Garcia, PsyD, CARD Assessment Director. “The Social Skills Group will help increase your child’s reciprocal conversation, ability to initiate, maintain and take turns during conversations. This will also help your child identify and cope with the physiological symptoms of anxiety related to new social situations as well as learn alongside peers with similar social skills.”

Social Skills Group is a way of teaching children social skills, which is a set of behaviors that allow a child to interact and communicate better with other people. A child with poorly developed social skills may have low self-esteem, display conduct problems such as, fighting and arguing and have trouble maintaining relationships with peers. The main focus of Social Skills Group is to help improve a child’s ability to make friends and keep friendships, build up self-confidence, and behave more appropriately.

For more information about Social Skills Group or to sign up your child, please contact Olivia Maximo at o.maximo@centerforautism.com or call (818) 345-2345 Ext. 249.
