Social Skills Group!

When I lived in Atlanta, I developed a passion for working with middle schoolers with social skills deficits. Over almost 6 years, I developed many social skills groups while working as a Speech-Language Pathologist for The Howard School. I had fun implementing a social skills cooking club, social skills movie club and social skills writing workshop. I found the most success when allowing students to have some autonomy in the direction of the group as well as explicitly sharing the purpose of the group to the students.

After moving to Western North Carolina, it took some time (almost 3 years), but I’m VERY excited to announce that I will be starting a social skills group in Asheville, North Carolina!

I’ve incorporated all of the ideas from my previous groups and combined them into one EPIC social skills group.

Stay tuned for the fun things we do together while learning how to be more of a social thinker!

  1. Hello. I am an SLP in Morganton. I offer social groups for middle schoolers and high school students at school and in my private practice. I completed the Level 1A Observation with Winner in 2016. Would you consider sharing your personal email with me? I have some questions I would love to bounce off of you based on your post.
