Additional Programming

Social Skills & Music Therapy Program (Friends Club)

Our students learn how to develop and strengthen social and communication skills by participating in fun and motivating activities. The Social Skills & Music Therapy program provides ample opportunities to build positive peer relationships where self-esteem and confidence can excel.

The Social Skills and Music Therapy Program will:

  • Help participants develop social skills, life skills, and problem-solving strategies, including conversation and basic interaction skills
  • Help participants improve communication through eye contact, tone of voice, body language, listening and conversations
  • Allow participants to use these skills in a variety of activities, such as group discussion, cooperative games, role-playing, art projects, and recreational activities and music.
  • Assist participants in developing an awareness of their individual styles of interacting.
  • Promote self-esteem and build confidence.

Why practice Social Skills & Music Therapy?

  • Many children with Learning Disabilities and Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder struggle when interacting and socializing with peers.
  • In general, the ability to understand social interactions, read facial expressions, perceive and express emotions, and interpret language’s more subtle meanings are acquired intuitively at an early age. Those with learning disabilities, however, sometimes need extra help in both developing and understanding these social skills. As they learn, they also need a safe and supportive place where they can practice these skills.
