Socialization Groups

Our Social behavior Intervention Groups are designed to serve children with a variety of learning needs. All interventions are based on developmentally appropriate and research based practices in combination with behavioral principles and are individualized to fit the needs of the child and his or her family. Socialization groups serve children ranging in age from 30 months to 18 years. These groups target deficits in the areas of socialization, peer interaction, social communication, and behavior. The typical consumer-client ratio for Social Behavior Intervention Therapy does not exceed 3:1 with well-trained staff leading and implementing the goals of each child. These groups typically occur once per week for 90 minutes and are located in both the Sacramento and Auburn offices. The goal of this program is to generalize skills learned in the therapy setting to a parent driven, natural social environment.
Programs typically taught within the Social Group may include:
• Social: Making friends, peer pressure, turn taking, trading, sharing the spotlight
• Social Communication: Joining a conversation, eye contact, asking to play
• Behavior: Coping skills, asking for help, ways to gain attention
