Welcome to the Social Skills
We utilize a primarily cognitive-behavioral
approach to teach social skills to children,
adolescents, and adults who have
social-communication difficulties. These may
include autistic spectrum disorders, attention
deficit disorders, and other psychiatric
conditions or learning disabilities that may be
associated with social difficulties. Three
principal goals guide our services:
- To provide relevant social skill instruction
that will generalize into daily routines.
- To make socializing fun so that students want
- To help "typical" peers and professionals
become more understanding, accepting, and
engaging of those with social difficulties.
We have several therapists
who work under the auspices of SSTP and three locations: Somerset,
Maplewood, and Westfield, New Jersey.
