Social Skills Training for Children
Our team offers social skills groups for kids. Learning social skills at an early age is vital to a child's ability to create and maintain positive relationships throughout his, her, or their life. We facilitate our group coaching services through Zoom, a widely-used and HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform.
We work closely with parents to improve their child’s social skills. Learn the benefits and process of group social skills training for children.
The Advantages of Social Skills Groups
Social skills group training has a wide variety of benefits
for children, including:
If your child has trouble communicating how they feel or simply speaking with their friends, this is the training program for them. We’ll teach your child how to start and maintain conversations, respond to what other people say, and ask for help when they need it.
Empathy, or the ability to share and understand other peoples’ emotions, is a vital skill to have in every part of one’s life. It helps your child regulate their emotions and provide helpful responses to the people they talk to. Our clinicians offer exercises and techniques to assist your child in improving the ability to read others’ emotions and how to react to them properly.
Better Mental Health Management
Mental health concerns like social anxiety may prevent your child from talking with others because of a fear of being judged. We provide a safe space for your child at The Social Skills Center. Our clinicians make sure that group members accept and understand each other unconditionally. They’ll also teach techniques to help manage and overcome symptoms related to your child’s unique challenges.
Why Choose The Social Skills Center?
We’ve helped thousands of clients improve their social skills.
Here is why parents continue to choose our services for their kids and why you should, too!
1. Seasoned Staff
We have over two decades of experience in helping children, adolescents, and adults improve their social skills. Plus, our master’s and doctoral level clinicians are trained and led by Dr. Christopher Haley, a licensed clinical psychologist that organizes and facilitates 12 social skills groups every week.
2. Group Matching
Most practices only match group members by their age. Unfortunately, this leads to groups with very high and very low levels of functioning and leads to a significant disconnect between group members. At The Social Skills Center, we always match our online group members by both age AND level of functioning. This leads to a greater connection among group participants.
3. Expert Services, Wherever You Are
For over 20 years we have provided our social skills services in-person at our offices in Oakton, Woodbridge, and Fredericksburg, Virginia. We now offer online social skills training for children through the Zoom video conferencing platform. This allows your child to participate in group social skills training from locations outside of our area.
