New at the Child Mind Institute
We are excited to announce that this winter the Child Mind Institute will offer parent and child social skills groups. This is a 10-week, evidence-based program designed to help children in grades 1 through 3 develop social, problem solving, and school readiness skills.
The groups have 2 concurrent components:
A child social skills group teaches children strategies to make new friends, problem-solve, think flexibly, stay focused and follow directions through games, role-plays, arts and crafts and other fun activities.
A parent behavior management skills group coaches parents in building positive behavioral management skills, with a focus on encouraging their children’s new skills learned in group. Parents meet other parents who share their experiences and who are looking for new ways to help their cildren.
The winter session will be held at the Child Mind Institute from 5:30 to 6:30pm starting Monday, January 11, 2016, for 10 weeks (excluding holidays). The cost is $2,500. To be eligible for the group, children should be in grades 1 through 3 and present with social skills deficits or have been diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, or anxiety or mood disorders. To determine eligibility and fit, we require a diagnostic evaluation for any child who is not a current patient of the Child Mind Institute. Cost for the evaluation is based on the rate of the clinician assigned. Parents can sign up by contacting Jessica Prizer at 646-625-4259 or firstname.lastname@example.org andvisit our website for more details.
We hope to see you this winter!
