Social skills groups
Social skills groups are designed to meet recreational, social, behavioral, cognitive, physical, and emotional needs of individuals ranging in age from 3 to 12 years. Children are grouped according to age and functioning level.  Groups meet weekly to address areas of need including, but not limited to:  not dominating conversation, recalling/retaining information provided by a peer, relatedness to others, appropriately expressing feelings/recognizing emotions in others, following directions, attending behaviors/readiness skills, and more!  Sessions will be led by a board certified music therapist and will incorporate games and playing instruments into each session. 
**Also offering social skills groups for teens and adults**

Benefits of Services:
Music is a motivating source for many individuals. People of all ages across the world enjoy music! Goals which focus on social, emotional, physical, behavioral, cognitive, and quality of life needs can be met through music experiences. Through an assessment, the board certified-music therapist can identify areas of need and areas of strength to create a treatment plan for client success. Depending upon needs, group or individual treatment can be established.
