Andover girls offered program to aid social skills

July 11, 2013 by  

Today’s Simply Social Kids is a program designed to educate children in valuable social skills that are easily integrated into any situation.

The program imparts a fusion of social thinking modules, collaborative problem solving (also known as CPS), and live action social skills coaching provided in a relaxed setting. Children between the ages of 5 and 17 will learn strategies that foster confidence and resilience while dealing with anxiety.

A girls only group, it speaks toward facilitating friendships via role-playing, artistic creativity, games, and select activities designed to connect and engage young girls. This is an ideal setting for girls who struggle with shyness and become stressed in social environments. Children and teens who participate in the Simply Social Kids curriculums tend not to be aware that they are simultaneously having fun while learning social skills.

This event will take place this afternoon, July 11, at 2:30 pm. The address is 1 Industrial Way, Unit #4 in Tyngsboro, which is about 30 minutes from Andover. Pre-registration is mandatory. The event’s website is the place to held to view a brochure about the event. To reserve tickets for this or any future events, please call 978.764.2758.
