Social Circle
Bi-monthly Sunday program for children ages 6-12 with social challenges who can benefit from a group focusing on learning and practicing social skills through recreational and social activities in a fun and supportive environment. Children are placed in small groups of 2-3 and paired with a supportive, trained volunteer buddy to facilitate positive interactions as well as provide friendship and support. Activities include social skills games/activities, sports with an emphasis on cooperation and teamwork skills, and collaborative art and music projects, all infused with Jewish values, traditions and culture. Parents drop off their children and then are encouraged to stay and join other parents to socialize and support one another or enjoy a 2 hour break off-site. Facilitated discussions on topics relevant to parents of children and teens with special needs will occur at particular sessions.
