Summer Social Skills Group: Ages 8-11 (Wednesday, July 19th) 10-11am

July 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am



This summer, we will be running weekly social groups for children and adolescents ages 5-15 to encourage turning off the video games and screens, and spending time socializing with one another face-to-face! These groups will provide age-appropriate opportunities to learn and practice social skills in a natural environment with peers. Each week will be focused on one executive function skill, such as memory, planning, organization, emotional control, etc. Participants will get to practice that skill in a hands-on, play-based way with peers through board games, challenges, conversation topics, and more.


  • Building friendships
  • Keeping Friends
  • Problem Solving
  • Anger Management
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Communication Skills
  • Perspective Taking
  • Social Planning
  • Handling conflict


These open groups will be held weekly for one hour at a drop-in fee of $40 each session. Sign-ups and payment must be made
at least 48 hours in advance of the group start time. Groups will be capped at 6 students per session and broken up by age group:

Ages 5-7
Ages 8-11
Ages 12-15

Groups will be run by Maggie Strippy, LPC, who has 7 years of experience as an intervention specialist working with children in both school and clinical settings. Rooted in a variety of evidence-based practices, your child will explore the fundamentals to building executive function skills while working on cultivating interpersonal connections with peers through play, problem solving, and natural social opportunities.
