Boundaries Social Skills Group

Starting September 17th – Boundaries Social Skills, 7-week program. Tuesdays 5pm-6pm.

Enrollment closes on August 30th.

This group has a maximum of 5 participants and is for ages 10-15. This program is based on and uses the Circles Curriculum from James Stanfield. Each week participants learn about a different “circle” or “color” and the people that best fit in that circle. Each “circle” has a level of talk, touch, and trust associated with it to help participants understand the types of interactions with people in each color group. Week one introduces the Purple Private Circle. During that first week positive self-talk and safety are introduced, both topics that are reviewed and expanded upon throughout the program. Parents receive a handout each week with a review of the previous week’s content, information on the newest “circle” and encouragement to discuss the content further with their child using examples of people the participant knows. The program culminates in a review of all circles and a pizza party with families during the final week. As with all of our services at the KSU Speech & Hearing Clinic, the Boundaries Social Skills group is facilitated by graduate clinicians under the supervision of a licensed SLP. Even if your child has participated in the past some of our families find that repeating the group with new facilitators and a new group of children helps their son or daughter learn and practice more of the concepts learned from Boundaries. The cost of this program is $250. For more information please call (330) 672-2672.
