Map Location Social Skills Training & Coaching


Our award-winning social-emotional learning groups focus on increasing social intelligence and pro-social behavior. We provide direct instruction for children and teens on how to improve social skills and use effective problem solving techniques with peers, siblings and parents. We find a great deal of value in providing opportunities for kids and teens to practice and apply those skills in a welcoming, fun, and social environment that includes the extra layers of facilitation and support to increase your child's or teen's social abilities and conflict resolution skills. We are the real-time practice and application place for social learning.

Social skills are learned, practiced and reinforved using our unique in-the-moment social coaching model. Because every child and teen is an individual, our approach is not one-size-fits-all. We draw from the concepts of collaborative problem solving, social thinking, incidental teaching and positive behavioral support. We believe that learning friendship skills is something every child will benefit from! Our purposeful approach to incidental teaching has assisted many children in gaining social confidence, finding social sucess and generalizing what they learn to other settings.

We also provide parent consultations, school consultations, behavior evaluations, professional development workshops and more.
