Tuesday's Child
Tuesday's Child equips families with the skills to manage children's challenging behavior.

Friendship Club
Life is a lot easier to navigate when you have positive social skills. If your 6-8 year old has trouble interacting appropriately with others, especially peers, our 10-session social skills group can help.

Children with behavior issues often lack critical social skills and miss important social cues. Our Social Skills Group for children ages 6 to 8 can help. Our child behavior experts guide kids through fun activities to help them explore emotions, friendships, and expected behaviors. Based on the SuperFlex curriculum developed by Michelle Garcia Winner, MA, CCC-SLP, activities focus on helping children interact appropriately with peers.

Concepts covered in the curriculum:

  • Social Smarts: The type of “smarts” in our brains that we use whenever we are around other people. Social smarts help our brain to know that others are having thoughts about us and we are having thoughts about them. We use social smarts in school, at home, and EVERYWHERE
  • School Smarts: Different types of “smarts” in our brain that we use for school learning.
  • Body in the group: Your body is in the group if you are following the group plan..
  • Brain in the group: Your brain is in the group when you are paying attention to what is happening in the group.
  • Thinking with your eyes: This means that you are using your eyes to look at a person and it makes them feel that you are thinking about what they are saying or doing.

The program is based on the SuperFlex curriculum developed by Michelle Garcia Winner, MA, CCC-SLP.
