Intro group:  2:30 - 3:30 pm

Calming group: 4:00 - 5:00 pm

Today more than ever it is clear that we all need some help with social skills - learning how to help ourselves and others in communal situations.  We live in communities, but what are the expectations?  How do we handle it if we've never learned?

 

We provide two social skills groups - one for students who need exposure to their peers in order to gain experience in social practices, (Intro)  and one for students who might experience anxiety and/or emotional dysregulation (Calming).

Intro Group accomodates younger children - TK - 2nd grade; and Calming Group is geared toward 1st - 4th grades.

In the Intro class, students learn:

  • How to communicate in healthy ways

  • Methods to resolve conflict

  • How to use critical thinking to solve problems

  • How to include others

  • How to build relationships

 

In the Calming class, there is a focus on:

  • Techniques to reduce stress and anxiety

  • Identifying and managing emotions

  • Conflict resolution strategies

  • Coping skills

  • Self advocacy

The Power of Earth

 

Evidence shows that time in nature reflects directly in students' behavior as well as academic success.  See our resources for some of the studies.
