Upper Elementary

3rd-5th grades

Good social skills are expected by teachers and peers by upper elementary but they don’t always come naturally! Our upper elementary social skills classes focus on important social musts such as self-awareness and control, peer observation, group interaction, and the building blocks for interacting with friends! We focus on managing emotions, responding to teasing, being flexible, dealing with anger, fear or losing and having manners in a group. We discuss what is a real friend and introduce concepts to deal with bullying.

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.

Tuesdays 4:30-5:45

Wednesdays 4:30-5:45

Thursdays 4:30-5:45


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.

“My son, who was diagnosed with ADHD and Asperger’s, has attended Social Motion for two years now and the progress he has made has been tremendous. The development of his social skills was key in his interactions with classmates which was a much needed confidence booster going into middle school.”
