SOCIAL SKILLS

Social skill groups provide children and adolescents opportunities to gain skills in social interaction through a purposeful and therapeutic approach. Groups are designed to be fun and interactive so students can learn and apply social skills through natural engagement. Middlesex Educational Services offers social skill training for students in grades K-12. Students are grouped based on their age and skill level and groups do not exceed 6 students. Social Skills are taught by social skill coaches with several years of experience.
