Group Therapy

Helping individuals thrive in a social world by building social skills and connections to others

Social challenges greatly impact the success of children with autism and related developmental disorders

These challenges can impede all areas of development, academic success, and independent functioning. Our structured, curriculum-based groups are designed to help individuals function well in a social setting.

CCSN’s group therapy sessions address social functions like: listening skills, social reasoning and problem solving, nonverbal communication, conflict resolution, social rules and conventions, and more. We offer sibling groups so individuals can benefit from a supportive environment of peers who have similar experiences.

Our approach is to build on the individual’s strengths and interests, and to teach social skills through:

  • Creating a supportive social environment within which the individual can establish and practice social communication skills and successfully interact with others
  • Providing skill instruction tailored to the learning profile of the individual
  • Creating opportunities to practice skills within the group
  • Making social interactions supportive, satisfying, and enjoyable

Groups are available for children, adolescents, and young adults with social processing difficulties related to:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Asperger's Syndrome
  • Nonverbal Learning Disabilities
  • Semantic and Pragmatic Disorders
  • Communication Disorders
  • Specific Learning Disorders
  • Neurological Impairments
  • Chronic Pediatric Illness
