Social Skills Classes
Groves Academy sources social skills classes through Skill Sparks, a company founded by a Groves alumni parent. Skill Sparks is dedicated to helping youth learn and practice social skills in a fun and supportive environment. The class format of direct, focused, skill-based instruction in a classroom environment allows new skills to be practiced through specific individual and team activities. In small groups settings, students are given the opportunity to learn, review and practice, practice, practice important social skills in an affirming and supportive environment.
Benefits from the sessions include:
- Pride in achievement
- Improved self-esteem
- New friendships and opportunities
Classes for youth and teens target high-functioning students who want to learn new skills and need the confidence, experience, and practice to successfully take part in conversations and social exchanges. Learning these skills can enhance the child's chances for success with their peers in the classroom and can help establish social competence in other areas of their lives.
Classes are available at Groves Academy throughout the year. For more information or to register, visit www.skillsparks.com.
