Social Groups

All our social group programs focus on preparedness of those skills for developing and sustaining relationships. Relationship development is emphasized by teaching skills needed for successful peer interactions. Skills needed for successful group learning are practiced through whole and small group activities, whereby the goals and objectives are individualized to meet the needs of our students. All our groups are conducted in English.

The focus of this group is to help students who need assistance with their social-communication skills. Having good social communication skills is critical in handling the challenges one faces in life and his interaction with others. Often, deficits in this area may lead to loneliness, isolation and depression. Our aim is to provide social opportunities for students to be socially competent and form genuine meaningful relationships. We want to empower students with skills that will enrich their quality of life.
