The Social Place
Date:April 24, 2012
The Social Place has become a division of Meliora Academy! The educational institution reknowned for remarkable outcomes and improving the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorders has collaborated with Family Spectrum of Care, LLC to offer The Social Place an innovative and integrative social and leisure skills building program for children and adolescents ages 3 years to 21 years. The Social Place is a new and exciting model for teaching the essential skills of cognition and facilitating the generalization of these skilsl to build into social and leisure skills. Social skills are best learned when directly taught in a small group setting where the child can observe through role modeling and then practice these skills in a safe and supportive environment. The Social Place provides options for those students who require 1:1 instruction and facilitation to learn and generalize their skils to small groups. The Social Place embraces approaches such as applied behavior analysis, cognitive behavioral therapy, sensory integration and social thinking with an emphasis on overall relatedness. We offer an integrative approach to programming where children and youth learn to effectively manage their ASD, can establish friendships, find their unique aptitude, build self-esteem and have fun. Now accepting registrations for after school and summer 2012 programming. Call 203-237-5710 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an intake assessment.
