Amy Elder MA CCC-SLP, a speech therapist at the Midtown office of Child and Family Development, often works with children and teens to improve social skills. When appropriate, she forms speech and language-based SOCIAL SKILLS GROUPS to expand opportunities for practice and friendships.
Groups are for children who struggle during interactions with others. Participants focus on practical conversational skills, such as:
- Social awareness
- Turn taking
- Expressing themselves
- Non-verbal communications
- Responding appropriately
- Problem solving scenarios
These groups are ongoing, so new clients may join in at anytime. Up to 4 participants are grouped by age range and speech-language abilities.
Families may use available insurance benefits. Regular deductibles and co-pays apply. Prior Authorization, medical necessity approval and evaluations are required, as applicable by funding source. Families may also pay privately. Group services are $50/ session.
