A Word From Our Clients...

Thank you for providing my daughter Haley with the valuable skills you taught her during her participation in your social skills class.  She has struggled over the past few years with understanding what kids expect and what is acceptable when it comes to social skills. Your class has taught her how to be a friend, how to initiate conversations, how to give and take in conversations, how important it is to listen and give of yourself even when you are not asked to do so, how to be a good sport, and how to read social cues that have always seemed difficult to understand.  Haley feels like she has some new tools and a sense of control that has given her confidence in social situations she may have felt awkward about in the past.  She thinks the kids are nicer to her because she has learned what behaviors may not have been working for her in the past.  What you have given to Haley are skills that she will use throughout her life.  Thanks again.   -Jan Brock
