Does your pre-teen or teenager need more social skills practice while social distancing? If so, our interactive, virtual game group may be the answer! Each week, we will introduce a new online game that will allow your child to practice their interpersonal relational skills while having fun with their peers. Group leaders will support individuals by providing structure and helping to reinforce positive social behaviors. Two group options are available based on your child’s age and parents are encouraged to sign their child up as soon as possible due to limited capacity.

Space is still available in Section 1. Charges will be prorated for those who do not attend all sessions. Click here to sign up!

Quarantine can make maintaining sleep routines and getting enough rest even more difficult. This 1-hour webinar will help families understand sleep requirements, identify signs of sleep issues, and provide in-depth tips and interventions to improve the whole family’s sleep hygiene. This webinar best fits parents with their own sleep difficulties or parents of children 5 years+ with sleep difficulties.
