KIDS WE SERVE

Children with delayed social skills are a diverse population.  Some may have speech-language delays, gross-fine motor delays, cognitive delays, ADHD/ADD, autism spectrum disorders (ASD), or delayed development in the area of play skills resulting from limited opportunities to interact with other children.

DID YOU KNOW?

Social skills/play skills are the basis for which all language is built.  Children develop cognitive-academic skills, expressive language skills, gross motor skills,and  fine motor skills through play in the early years of life.  Basic social skills are present starting at birth!

AGE OF TECHNOLOGY

Many children are no longer developing play skills normally.  Instead, computers, cell phones, and TVs are the focus of development.  While technology is a valuable learning tool, crucial play skills are not developed during technology use.  The result is a lack of social/play skills leading to a long-term impact on academic, vocational and interpersonal skills.

PLAY & LEARN

SBC teaches social communication/play skills to children in a fun, structured environment.

Monarch Club

As children grow older, they may need ongoing support accompanied by assistance with new challenges such as jobs, relationships, and learning to become independent and confident young adults. The Monarch Club provides individuals with the next level of social skills in alignment with their unique challenges and developmental needs.

School Based Social Groups

Lunchtime is a great time to work on social skills as it is a natural setting for children. Most children really struggle during these unstructured social times. We work with all the children to develop necessary social skills during their lunch. Each child will have specific goals based on their initial screening.

Social Butterflies Club Pro

Our online community was created for busy professionals to access materials needed to successfully run and manage social skills groups. The materials were developed for use in our successful social communication program – The Social Butterflies Club Social Skills Program.

Summer Services

Summer is a great time to build your child’s social communication skills! Our summer camps run 4 consecutive days a week, Monday-Thursday, for 2 hours each day. The children have a fun time making crafts, cooking foods, playing games and interacting with peers. They don’t even know that they are working on objectives!
