Social Skills Groups

New Social Skills Groups start in March 2014!

Children's Care is offering three new 10-week Social Skills Groups beginning in March 2014. These groups are helpful for children with autism spectrum disorders, but are also beneficial to any child ages 4-16 that has trouble with socialization, is very shy, or has trouble fitting in.  

Group 1 meets Mondays, March 24-May 26; Group 2 meets Tuesdays, March 25-May 27; and Group 3 meets Thursdays, March 27-May 29. Children are grouped by age. 

The groups are led by Aimee Deliramich, PhD, Psychology Associate.   A social skills group may be for your child is he or she has these difficulties:

  • Interacting and playing with peers
  • Making new friends
  • Being rejected by other kids
  • Plays alone
  • Becomes angry easily
  • Is unable to engage in or initiate a conversation
  • Doesn't notice how other perceive him/her

All sessions are held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Children's Care Rehabilitation Center at 1020 West 18th Street in Sioux Falls.  Cost is $350 per child. Insurance coverage does not apply, but some scholarship funds are available. For details or to register, call Carla at (605) 444-9700.
