Flex your brave muscles and get ready to tackle anxiety and fear with this 6-week group aimed at helping children in 1st through 5th grades. Children with Selective Mutism, shyness, and social anxiety will benefit from continuing to practice the skills they have gained during the school year, while developing social skills by interacting with other children in a safe and contained therapeutic setting.
Included are two parent workshops aimed at providing information on the following topics:
Helping your child transition during the summer to a new school year
Communicating with your child's teacher
Strategies to decrease anxiety and increase verbal communication
A post-group parent session will be scheduled to discuss your child's progress as well as suggestions for continued support.
Summer groups fill up quickly, please let Dr. Ashley know if you have any questions and would like to be put on the waitlist.
