Children in Indoor Playground

Social skills Program

Children and adolescents find themselves in daily situations where they are required to use social skills to interact, to accomplish, to be included, and to function. Few children commonly struggle with making friends, being a part of a group, problem-solving, nonverbal communication and expressing feelings.

We have curated a Social skills  Program for children and adolescents to put more focus on social interaction and learning appropriate skills to functionally communicate well within society.
