We are excited to offer our social skills group over winter break and look forward to your child joining us at our new office location (2441 W. Horizon Ridge Ridge Parkway, Henderson, NV 89052). The sessions will include winter-themed activities focusing on: initiating and exchanging basic conversation, learning how to take the perspective of another person, engaging in appropriate play interactions, promoting imaginative play, and working together on collaborative activities.
The four session series extends over a two week period and is scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays (12/26/17, 12/28/17, 1/02/18, 1/04/18) from 10-11 am. The rate is $70 per drop-in session or a discounted rate of $60 is offered if the series is paid in full ($240). A deposit of $60 is required by December 18, 2017 to secure a spot for your child. Acceptable forms of payment are checks (addressed to Talk of the Town) or cash, and a receipt will be provided to you at the time when payment is received. Deposits can be mailed to the following: Talk of the Town, 2441 W. Horizon Ridge Parkway, Henderson, NV 89052.
The goal of this program is to facilitate social interaction and understanding of social lessons. Please note that children who participate in this group must be able to demonstrate behavior conducive to functional participation without distractions to the goals of the group. If your child struggles with these skills, it is important for his/her benefit in overall learning that they first be addressed in a setting more appropriate to those skills/goals. We are happy to assist you in finding referrals for other programs.
