Social Skills Groups

New Social Skills Groups start in September 2014!


LifeScape is offering two new ten-week Social Skills Groups, this September-November. The groups meet once a week, offering intensive practice in socialization, manners, self-awareness, anger-management, and more. These groups are helpful for children with autism spectrum disorders, but are also beneficial to any child age 4-16 that has trouble with socialization, is very shy, or has trouble fitting in.

Group 1 meets Tuesdays, September 16-November 18, and Group 2 meets Thursdays, September 18-November 20. Groups are led by Dr. Aimee Deliramich, Licensed Clinical Psychologist. 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

Group times are 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at LifeScape, 1020 West 18th Street in Sioux Falls. (Formerly Children's Care Rehabilitation Center.) Cost is $350 per child. Insurance coverage does not apply, but some scholarship funds are available.

For details or to register for the summer or fall groups, call Carla at (605) 444-9700.

I do it for the kids. I like to help people!
