For some students, obtaining and utilizing good social skills do not come naturally. They move through their environment having a difficult time communicating and understanding more than just direct language-based interactions. For example, good social skills include sharing space with others and learning to regulate one’s own behavior to other people’s thoughts or expectations as well as using your whole body to understand what people are “saying” around you. For some students, these skills need to be taught.
Following the Social Thinking model, we will be teaching a 6-week session on helping your child begin learning these skills. In turn, you will learn how to shift your thoughts and vocabulary while helping your child at home.
Your child does not need a diagnosis to attend. However,this class is designed for students with Aspergers, ADD, ADHD, or any child needing to learn how to “think” about thinking as well as understand more about the complex social world in which we live. While times of movement will be available, students must be able to sit in a room with a small group for one hour.
This class will meet for a six-week period beginning on Sunday, October 2nd. There will be three separate groups. The Kindergarten-2nd grade group will meet from 2:00-3:00 p.m., the 3rd-5th grade group will meet from 3:30-4:30 and the 6th-8th grade group will meet from 5:00-6:00 p.m. Group sizes will be kept small with no more than eight to ten children in each group. This six-week session will be held at 8401 Medical Plaza Drive, Suite 120, Charlotte, NC 28262.
The total cost for the six-week session plus materials is $200.00.

We are planning on having another, shorter session around the holidays (November through early December) to help assist students learn social behaviors and skills to utilize during these times. This class will also have a parent participation group as well as a student group. You do not need to attend this first session to attend the later session in November. Please enter your e-mail in “follow our blog” on the home page to receive the latest information! We will send out information about that shorter session towards the end of October.
