6th grade

The move from elementary school to middle school is a huge step change that many are afraid of. Our job is to help prepare you for these new social demands. In Intermediate social skills classes we work on adapting to our new environment and increasing our powers of observation and conversation to blend in and fit it. Classes cover coping, dealing with stress and embarrassment, making mistakes, problem solving and fending off the dreaded bully. And of course we learn how to do a locker combination!

After school social skills – never too early!

Classes are curriculum-based, staffed by 1 teacher and 1 assistant and last 75 minutes. Maximum class size is 6 students. Students practice their skills during monthly community outings.

Wednesdays 6:00-7:15

Thursdays 6:00-7:15


Parent Training – all the info you need!

Monthly parent training sessions will be offered on site. These trainings are intended to provide you with the knowledge and skills to be your child’s social coach 24/7. Free to parents of enrolled students.

Parent Coaching Videos - Be your child’s social coach!

Ever wonder what your child learns in class? Each week’s lesson will have a correlated 2-5 minute video that explains what skill was taught, what scripts and vocabulary were introduced and how you can continue coaching and support on a daily basis. The videos are available in a private parent section of the website. Free to parents of enrolled students.
