Welcome, you’ve come to the right place!
Kidz Possible is so much more than a social skills group! Our Social Club help neurodiverse kids connect, learn, and grow! Our social clubs are designed for kids ages 8 – 17 with Autism, NVLD, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorders, and for those who need help making friends and understanding how their behaviors affect relationships and academic outcomes.
At Kidz Possible, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to learn social skills in a fun and psychologically safe environment. We use a strengths based approach to increase self-esteem and provide natural opportunities for developing positive, reciprocal relationships. Our interventions and strategies are backed by research, client-centered and rooted in experience.
If this sounds boring to you or your child, don’t worry! We believe you can be both evidence-based and fun, the two aren’t mutually exclusive! Our program is highly interactive and engaging with an emphasis on providing opportunities for peer-to-peer social rewards and connection. We help our clients build the skills that they will use over and over again in academic, professional and social environments.
Kidz Possible utilizes evidence-based programs and strategies to teach your child the social skills needed to foster healthy relationships and build self-confidence. Our background in behavior skills training and special education provides our clients with fun and interactive learning opportunities specifically designed to develop confidence and a strong personal agency. We routinely utilize the following programs:
- The Momentous Institute ChangeMakers curriculum promotes social emotional learning to build relationship skills, self-regulation skills, and self-awareness.
- PEERS®, Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills, is world-renowned for providing evidence-based social skills treatment to neurodiverse children, adolescents, and young adults.
- Super Flex and the Zones of Regulation is a social learning curriculum developed by Michelle Garcia Winner and Leah M. Kuypers. Both frameworks focus on developing self-regulation, executive functioning, perspective taking and social problem solving skills.
