Middle School Winter/Spring OTB Dates

Happy New Year! We are excited for our winter/spring schedule for our middle school group.   If you are new to our group, please click here Registration for Middle School OTB Club Winter_Spring 2018 to complete a registration form. We need at least one registration form for you child.

Middle school can be a challenging time socially. It can be especially challenging understanding the “hidden” social rules, nonverbal language and all of the “grey” areas that exist. Beginning in January, we will host a middle school hang out for teaching, learning, and practicing all of those grey areas in a fun environment. The group meets from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Each class, of no more than ten, will be a diverse group of students. The mixture of 6th-8th graders will be students who need to strengthen their overall social skills with kids who have strong social skills. We feel it is important to be able to support this age range in more of a natural environment with peers so they can have help in bringing awareness and strengthen self-monitoring skills to “grey” area situations. For example, grey areas may consist of times such as losing a game, having someone being perceived as “cheating”, or knowing how to start and hold a conversation socially with a peer or group of peers.

The cost for each class is $25.00 and we welcome you to drop your middle schooler off and pick him/her back up at 8:00 p.m.  Upcoming dates are listed below. Registration will remain open unless a class becomes full. Any full classes will be listed on our website. You may register ahead of time to reserve your child’s spot. You also have the option of registering the week of the class (as long as it is not full). Please e-mail, call or text us prior to 24 hours of each class date to confirm your child’s spot.  Please reach out to us at confidentsolutions7@gmail.com with any questions.

To register, please fill out at least one registration form found in the link above and e-mail it to us at confidentsolutions7@gmail.com. We will send you a PayPal link to complete your registration. All classes are held at University Ridge Office Center, 1905 JN Pease Place, Suite 201, Charlotte, NC 28262

Middle School Group for December

Good Morning!  Our middle schoolers will be meeting twice in the month of December.

 

 December 8th   6:30-8:00

Our amazing Drama Therapist will be coming back to join our teens the night of December 8th. You seriously won’t want to miss this! So what is Drama Therapy? North American Drama Therapy Association describes it as the intentional use of drama and/or theatre processes to achieve therapeutic goals. Our goals for our middle schoolers are to strengthen their social learning skills. The focus of this interactive session will be on conversations with peers and how to integrate that into their natural environments. This technique includes improvisation, theater games, storytelling, and enactment. This organic and fluid experience will be a ton of fun for us all!
