- Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) August 10, 2011 - The Center for Autism and Related Disorders, Inc. (CARD), one of the world's largest autism treatment centers providing state-of-the art therapy, has announced it will offer Social Skills Groups for children ages 5 to 8 and 10 to 12 with Asperger's and other mild social deficits. The groups will begin September 12, 2011 through October 10, 2011 from 4 pm - 5 pm at the CARD Assessment Center, located on 19019 Ventura Boulevard, Suite 100 in Tarzana, California.
"We received such positive feedback from parents during our last Social Skills Group session and decided not to only continue the sessions but increase them with a new age group," says Evelin Garcia, PsyD, CARD Assessment Director. "These social skills groups will help increase your child's reciprocal conversation, ability to initiate, maintain and take turns during conversations. They will also help children identify and cope with the physiological symptoms of anxiety related to new social situations as well as learn alongside peers with similar social skills."
Social Skills Group is a way of teaching children social skills, which is a set of behaviors that allow a child to interact and communicate better with other people. A child with poorly developed social skills may have low self-esteem, display conduct problems such as, fighting and arguing and have trouble maintaining relationships with peers. The main focus of the CARD Social Skills Groups is to help improve a child's ability to make friends and keep friendships, build up self-confidence and behave more appropriately.
