Strongsville Psychological Services offers two socialization groups for children ages (10-13) and adolescents ages (13+) diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.
The groups provide an opportunity for individuals with Asperger's to develop more adaptive skills through direct instruction, modeling, and practice within an environment of their peers. Individuals will be included based on their age and developmental level.
The objectives for the groups are as follows:
- Increase understanding of Asperger's
- Improve social skills
- Enhance self-awareness and expressiveness
- Promote self-confidence
Group sessions follow a consistent routine, include evidenced-based instruction, and allow for practice of essential skills. Services will be provided by an experienced school psychologist. Parents will be provided with copies of activities and receive updates regarding their child's progress, and a screening interview will be conducted.
Group sessions began in March 2012 and meet every other Tuesday from 6:30 - 7:30pm. Please contact us with questions and for additional details.
