“Summer Fun with Friends” is a once a week after school social skills program that offers a balance of brief instruction with a variety of fun indoor and outdoor games and activities to practice skills they are learning in an engaging and natural way.
Each group is supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst
Skills are taught by ABA Therapists
Our focus is on Peer Interaction, Conversation and Verbal Skills
Ideal candidates for this group are conversational but need facilitation for improved social skills
Enrollment is determined on a first come first served basis.
Each session is $20/day or $130 for all 7 days (a $10 savings!) and is paid in advance. The Arc of Loudoun members get 1 FREE day if enrolled in all 7 days!
Groups are designed for students who need coaching in peer relationships and conversations using the principles of Verbal Behavior and Applied Behavior Analysis. The ideal participant is able to converse with others but may need prompting to initiate or respond to peers.
Each week consists of fun social games and activities that include learning opportunities as well as activities specifically designed to focus on intensive instruction that supports peer-to-peer socialization. Intensive instruction is embedded into activities and is derived from evidence-based concepts of verbal behavior and behavior analysis, and focuses on developing the necessary skills needed to initiate with and respond to peers. Each session is supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst; conversation and verbal skills are facilitated by applied behavior therapists.
