For children with social-communication challenges to generalize new skills, it is essential to practice with peers. At Gentry PBS, we are able to match children based on their current abilities, to provide social skills practice in pairs or a group setting. We limit the number of children in each group so that goals can be tailored to each child's individual needs. Speech-language pathologists and behavior technicians work together to lead groups and support social language development. Social communication groups are an excellent way for your child to practice self-regulation in a group and develop essential social skills for making friends, self-advocating, and taking the perspective of others. Prior to enrolling in a social communication group, the Gentry PBS speech team will meet with you and your child to determine an appropriate placement in one of our groups.
