Social Skills Group

We now have an ongoing Social Group with Kate McClain (<a href=“ that allows children to improve social, communication, and play skills in a small group of similar-age peers. Weekly activities include games, snack, and a lesson/group discussion. The group serves children with a variety of challenges, including HFA, PDD-NOS, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, and sensory processing issues, as well as those without an official label who struggle with making friends. Children must be able to interact verbally with minimal prompts. Staff to participant ratio is 1:3 or 1:4. We ask for an 8 week commitment at a time; the program is ongoing as long as your child is working on specific outcomes.

TR Staff will schedule an appointment to ask parents questions over the phone. Free intake sessions will be available once pre-screening is completed. Participants will be matched with other peers with similar goals in order to better meet the needs of the participants in the group. You will find out at the end of the intake if your child is selected to be a part of the group. Please contact April Rosenthal at 703-228-4736 or to set up a pre-screening or for more information. Cost is $32 per class/week; we ask for an 8 week commitment.
