TherAbilities’ Friendship Group is a therapeutic environment fostering social relationships and self-regulation skills for children and youth.
Groups are designed to enhance the social awareness and interpersonal skills of children with developmental challenges. Social language and social cognition are central elements of this program. Friendship Group schedule includes developmentally appropriate play, cooperative and recreational activities, and facilitated discussions.
Parent meetings explain our curriculum and help ensure carryover of skills to be practiced in home/community settings.
