ABLS Social Clubs
Building social skills in social clubs.
Our social clubs focus on building social skills within a variety of settings and activities through the use of ABA. Groups are formed based on the individual strengths and needs of each student, which are evaluated through a Social Skills Assessment before placement. Throughout each program, teachers implement specific social skills programming to guide each participant toward individualized objectives while maximizing opportunities for peer engagement. Data are systematically collected and analyzed frequently to ensure ongoing measurement and data driven decisions.
Pre-School (3-5 years old)
Teachers implement specific social skills programming to guide each participant toward individualized goals while maximizing opportunities for peer engagement. We focus on cooperative play, conversation, following the “group plan” and understanding paralinguistic aspects of communication.
In cooking group chefs will have access to a full open floor plan kitchen to work on meal planning, nutrition, reading and listening skills, sequencing, turn-taking, measuring and adjusting recipes, food tasting and becoming familiar with identifying and operating a variety of kitchen tools.
Our program offers a space for children to develop social skills to navigate the unique social situations of growing up a girl. Groups promote skills such as forming and maintaining social relationships, non-verbal communication and body language, social perspective taking, self-regulation, impulse control and frustration tolerance.
