In the Me & My Friends group, your child will play and learn with friends to gain new skills to be a good friend. Overseen by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA), our experienced therapists will create a safe and fun environment where children will be challenged & supported to share, play and succeed.
Our Me and My Friends group is designed to develop social and play skills, focusing on teaching your child how to be a good friend. Through modelling, role-plays, and group
games/activities, your child will be guided to practice how to be a good friend by learning to
interact with peers. Furthermore, your child will gain an understanding of greetings, how to
start and engage in a conversation, sharing and turn taking, strategies to utilize when winning or losing a game, and how to recognize emotions of self and others.
