Simply Social Kids is a social skills coaching program for ages 8-28. We specialize in working with children, teens, and young adults with mild to moderate social challenges (ADHD, high functioning autism, anxiety). Online groups are available nationwide and in-person at our center in Tyngsboro, MA.
The programs at Simply Social Kids have an undercurrent of positive psychology. Children/teens/young adults will routinely have lessons based on gratitude, resiliency, and mindfulness to encourage a positive outlook despite social challenges. Those who understand how to embrace emotional well-being through positive psychology tend to be more resilient and optimistic.
Social lessons are customized weekly for group participants and include these topic areas:
Friendship and social skills – Resiliency – Empathy/Respect – Impulse control – Flexible thinking – Body language – Personal space – Learned optimism – Transitioning – Communication/conversation – Emotion/anxiety management – Problem solving – Conflict resolution – Sportsmanship – Perspective Taking – Mindfulness, and more.

Program commitment is month-to-month with cancellation notice due by the 20th of the month.
A brief phone intake is necessary for enrollment in social skills groups. The purpose of the intake call is to:
Determine if our program is a good fit for your child/teen/young adult.
For us to learn about the issues you would like addressed in our program.
Place your child/teen/young adult in a group with similarly aged peers who share the same interests. We learn about your child so we can match them based on friendship potential.
