Children’s Friendship Training

Friendship Training

The Children’s Friendship Training focuses on parent-assisted social skills training with particular attention given to development of best friend relationships.

These classes are tailored for children ages 9 through 11 with brain based disabilities. During the sessions the children will learn about appropriate social skills. They will practice the skills through behavior rehearsal and coaching to reduce negative behaviors and promote positive social skills. Simultaneously, parents are taught about core deficits of FASD that keep children from making friends. They are also given the companion information to their children’s sessions so they can help their children practice.

Children’s Friendship Training is for children ages 9 – 11 (Both child and parent need to attend each session).

Schedule coming soon

Cost: $ TBD per child (Non Refundable Fee)
