Social Skills Groups

Downers Grove, IL

Milestones is thrilled to offer Social Skills Groups to children in our community with unique sensory, speech, social-emotional or physical needs. These groups offer participants an opportunity to strengthen the relational skills they need to navigate social situations in everyday life. Maximum group size is six children, and each group meets weekly at our therapy center for eight sessions.

For Children under age 5

Our Approach

The Social Skills Groups at Milestones are designed to help children develop an awareness of the basic building blocks of social connection. Through play-based activities such as stories, games and songs, each child will have an opportunity to practice engagement skills with peers. Children of various personality types and abilities participate in our groups, and we adjust our activities to the unique needs of each child.

Each Social Skills Group targets opportunities to:

  • Engage with peers
  • Identify and attend to thoughts and feelings
  • Listen with the whole body
  • Be flexible in thinking
  • Participate in a group plan
  • Adjust behaviors in response to others

New sessions will start in January, April, June and September (please note that days may be subject to change until registrations are in).
