Social Skills and Small Group Classes

Develop Social Skills and Competency

In partnership with licensed professionals, EYC helps to design personalized programs for students who have difficulty with social skills, whether it be due to learning disabilities or problems with communication and social interaction. Research-based methods and small group, social skills activities help students learn to navigate the complex world of interpersonal interactions and gain social competency. Concerns that may be addressed include reading and transmitting non-verbal cues, emotional regulation, problem-solving, perspective- taking and initiating and processing social interactions.
