Care and Support Updates

Updates on the latest clinical offerings from our centers in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.

September 27, 2023

Learning how to form successful peer relationships is a critical skill for kids, and one that they will be using — and refining — all their lives. However, social skills don’t come naturally to all kids. When children don’t have typically developing language skills, they may not have an effective way to convey their wants and needs. For kids with autism or social communication challenges, getting social skills training can make a big difference.

Children’s Friendship Training (CFT) is a 12-week evidence-based social skills program for elementary school children who experience difficulties making or keeping friends. Space is limited, and enrollment is on a first-registered, first-served basis. Please complete the interest form and our team will contact you.

If you are concerned about your child’s development and would like to schedule an evaluation in New York or San Mateo, please reach out to us today.

Sensory Processing Issues in School

FOR EDUCATORS

Sensory Processing Issues in School

Sensory processing issues can make it hard for children to succeed at school. For example, sensitive kids might be overwhelmed by bright lights or loud noises like kids yelling at recess. Or they might have trouble paying attention because their clothing is uncomfortable. But there are practical changes you can make in the classroom to help these kids thrive.
