Program Overview

Social Saplings is a program I developed that pulls from Social Thinking, cognitive behaviour therapy, art therapy and anxiety strategies. Classes are tailored to the students’ needs. Generally they cover communication, emotional regulation and friendship skills.

Social Saplings is about developing social skills and social thinking in children ages 7-12. This is a great program for kids who have trouble socially and have mild anxiety.

Our classes are small and an interview is conducted beforehand with students to ensure a good class fit. Social Saplings follows Children’s Friendship Training with added self-regulation and emotional identification.

Our classes end with a 15 min. parent component to keep you abreast of what was covered, allowing you to practice skills with your child.

These classes run for 10 sessions. At the final class the kids will receive a certificate of achievement and have a class party.
