Social language mini groups for teens with Stacey Misko
In this program your teen will learn the art of socializing in a teen world. This group (just 2 participants with a Speech-Language Pathologist) is designed just for them.
We start with a one-on-one session. The Speech-Language Pathologist meets with your teen and gets to know their needs, strengths and interests. We identify target skills and to find your teen a good match to work on those skills together.
The next 4 sessions prepare the teens for an outing. We develop a Social Story together, and also use direct teaching, coaching, role plays, video modelling and lots of practice! We explore why certain social norms exist. We go beyond role plays to explore not only what we expect to happen, but the “what if’s.”
The final session will take place at a location of the teens’ choice in the community! Time to put our new skills to use!
Parents will be given tips on how to reinforce and practice skills with their teens.
We will find times that work for you! Five 1-hour sessions plus a final outing.
$400 (paid up front) for 5 weeks during the summer plus a final outing
(or $220 before session 1 and $200 before session 4).
* The one-on-one session is $120 for new clients. We apply the $120 towards the group fee if you attend the group.
