Young & Older Groups
SBC teaches social/play skills to children in a fun, structured environment. The unique structure of our program also develops speech, language, fine motor, gross motor, and social/play skills.
The population we serve...
Children with delayed social skills are a diverse population. Some may have speech -language delays, gross -fine motor delays, cognitive delays, ADHD/ADD, autism spectrum disorders (ASD), or delayed development in the area of play skills resulting from limited opportunities to interact with other children.
Did you know...
Social skills/play skills are the basis for which all language is built. Children develop cognitive - academic skills, expressive language skills, gross motor skills, and fine motor skills through play in the early years of life. Basic social skills are present starting at birth!
Living in the age of technology...
Many children are no longer developing play skills normally. Instead, computers, cell phones and televisions are the focus of development. Technology is a valuable tool for learning, however crucial play skills are not developed during the use of technology. The result is a lack of social/play skills that leads to a long -term impact on academic, vocational and interpersonal skills.
