Is your child clueless in social situations? Does he talk at length about topics that are of little interest to anyone else in the group? Does she keep teasing her brother even after he starts crying? Are you still setting up play dates for your pre-teen?
Participating in group activities can be daunting for children with social cognitive difficulties. Their challenges can be particularly acute during the summer months when so much time is set aside for fun activities with friends and family. Think Social East Bay’s 6-week summer program teaches children and teenagers between the ages of 5 and 18 what’s required to enjoy spending time in groups.
