The Autism Program (TAP) Now Enrolling Families in Social Skills Playgroup

6/1/2010  8:00 am

The Autism Program is hosting a free Wonderful Wednesdays Social Skills Playgroup every Wednesday in July from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. for families with children ages 3-5 years. The program will be held at the Family Resiliency Center this July. This one hour playgroup targets the development of basic social skills while encouraging peer and environmental awareness.

The specially designed playgroup highlights language skills to greet, request, comment, follow basic instruction, give eye contact, turn-take and state farewell with peers. Find and gross motor skills will be incorporated.

A parent or caregiver must accompany each child to the class and will be provided with tips and strategies to foster their child's development in all areas, with a focus on social skills.
