Providing a social support atmosphere

Emily at Lego

Kelberman Coaching and Connections will offer a series of support groups for students in grades 3-12 who have autism, ADHD, anxiety, social skills deficits, academic problems, and/or other issues that may impact their functioning at home, school, or community environments.

The goal of the Kelberman Coaching and Connections groups will be to provide a casual social support atmosphere with structured activities that promote building skills and increasing self-esteem and connections with others.  Each group will differ slightly in focus and will be tailored toward group member needs.

Examples include

  • Coaching and the development of social skills
  • Managing school anxiety and coping with bullying or friendship issues
  • Participating in special interest groups (Mindcraft group, Lego group)
  • Strengthening executive functioning (emotional/behavioral self-regulation; prioritizing and planning skills; test-taking strategies; organization; and time management)

Requirements

All participants must be toilet trained and be able to function within a 3:1 setting

There will be 6-8 members in each group.

Cost: $10.00 per week.  Insurance cannot be accepted but the Kelberman Center will accept cash, major credit cards, or checks.

Registration

Groups run for 8 weeks and then a new set of groups will begin.

Currently, all groups are at capacity.
