Skill Building Groups
Building the Social Skills for Success
Social Bridges Skill Building Groups offer participants of diverse abilities and ages — from children in PreK to young adults — the chance to develop the social and emotional competencies that lead to life success. The curriculum is age-appropriate, teaching skills that range from making friends and joining in play to managing stress and regulating emotions. Trained facilitators teach skills and lead participants in interactive games, activities, and discussions. Along with our general skill building groups, we also offer special topics:
- Friendship Group offers skill practice for young children whose social skills may be a little rusty due to the pandemic.
- Transitions Group focuses on life skills and is designed to help young adults with skills needed to function independently to navigate everything from college life to jobs.
- Savvy Social Media helps middle and high school teens to be safe and authentic in the virtual world.
There are no refunds due to the absence or withdrawal from groups.
Tuition and Fees
When you enroll your child or teen, you are making a semester-long commitment for Fall or Spring. Regular attendance is encouraged, as skills build upon one another. Additionally, in the semester-long commitment, you will not be refunded for sessions missed.
A non-refundable deposit to ensure placement in the group is due two weeks prior to start of group sessions. This deposit will be credited towards the overall tuition. Monthly payments are based on sessions held each month. Payment needs to be paid in full either at the beginning of the semester or paid monthly. There are no refunds due to absence or withdrawal from groups.
Insurance receipts will be provided monthly to those with current accounts through Simple Practice. Superbills are automatically generated the first week of each month and show all required information for reimbursements.
Family Empowerment Scholarship (FES)
Your child or teen can use their FES funds for our services. During our intake interview, please provide the student number, and we will submit statements directly for reimbursement with both Step-Up and AAA.
Parents, please check your email from Step Up to approve payment for services. It is your responsibility to ensure your child is in attendance for each session, as only sessions attended can be reimbursed. Any sessions missed are the responsibility of the family to make up (a check-in call with facilitator), or to pay out-of-pocket ($80/session).
