Children’s General Mental Health:

Children and adolescents come to therapy for differing reasons. For the most part, therapy for children and adolescents focuses on how the child/adolescent is relating with their family members, teachers, and peers.  General mental health groups are being run for school age children groups by ages 5 to 8 and 9 to 12.

Asperger’s Syndrome Support:

Support for Teens – The challenges of being a teen are hard enough as is, but add having Asperger’s syndrome to the list and you have a whole new formula.  Bring your teen to this supportive environment to learn to interact and practice their newly acquired skills while engage with other kids.  These skills are bound to help your child build the confidence and drive to make new friends and WANT to socialize in the future.  Your child will walk away feeling armed for a successful future.

Stepping Stones for Children – A social skills building group for Children ages 6 to 8; and 9 to 12.  There are many theories out there with beliefs on the most effective way to teach children social skills.  Some believe teaching a child in a classroom style setting is most effective, while others believe it is more effective to follow the lead of the child waiting for natural moments to occur where they are able to utilize social skills.  In Stepping Stones group curriculum for children and adolescents with Asperger’s Syndrome, written and developed by Molly Gratton, LCSW, RPT-S, a combination of both a behavioral approach and a developmental approach is utilized.
