Summer Social Skills Program
It is with great pleasure and excitement to introduce our 2-hour Intensive Social Skills Summer Program! The 2-hour Intensive Social Skills Summer Program offers learners in grades K-3 the opportunity to engage in a structured learning environment during the summer months. The 6.5 week program is ideal for early learners who struggle to demonstrate pre-requisite skills (i.e. following directions, on-task behavior, task engagement/initiation) in the learning environment.
Sessions are co-led by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and a PA Licensed Behavior Specialist. Our facilitators use principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) to inform instruction in a highly structured and engaging environment. Throughout the program, learners are taught to use visual supports, including schedules and checklists; social stories are used to pre-teach expected behavior; high levels of reinforcement is delivered to strengthen learner behavior. The goal is to equip early learners with the skills and environmental support to improve performance in the learning environment.
A unique component embedded into the program during the month of August is the opportunity for weekly community outings. Community trips allow for learners to practice newly acquired skills across multiple environments. While skills are initially taught within the program setting, outings provide naturally occurring opportunities to apply skills with similar-aged peers, such as engaging in conversations, reading social situations, advocating for self, and accepting changes in routines.
Participation in the program does not require enrollment at Stratford Friends School. The program is open to any K-3 student. Space is limited to ensure the needs of all learners are explicitly targeted. Please contact us for more information. We look forward to connecting with you!
