Enrollment is now open for the 2015-16 school year!The RNBC Social Skills Groups offer children and teens the opportunity to learn a variety of new skills in a supportive and therapeutic atmosphere. We use a flexible treatment manual developed at RNBC by Dr. Bernadette Evans-Smith and Ms. Adelaide Allen. The curriculum includes non-verbal communication, conversation skills, perspective taking and social problem solving skills to name a few. Groups include direct instruction and facilitated play. All children are engaged on a developmentally appropriate level while having fun. Once a child joins a group, we determine goals, monitor progress and meet with parents twice through the school year to provide feedback. Each child has individual goals tailored to his/her personal needs. When and where are the groups held? We offer groups for boys and girls ranging in ages 6 through high school. Group size ranges from two to six. Children are matched based on age, gender, areas of interests, strengths and challenges. Groups will begin in the fall and meet once a week for one hour during the school year. Days and times vary, but all are held during the evening (3:30 or later) on weekdays. Groups are held in our Skokie clinic. How do I sign up? Please contact Nadine Wengroff, APN MS, Intake Coordinator at 847-763-7944 for more information. What is the cost per session? Each group session is $110.00. We do not accept insurance, but can provide information to help you seek reimbursement from your insurance provider. Parent Testimonial: “Before I found out about the group, I really felt like we had nowhere else to turn. My husband and I can’t believe the change in our daughter. She's so much happier and self-confident than she was when she started group therapy. She’s now able to share her feelings, express empathy for others and contribute to group discussions, all necessary abilities to have in order to make and keep friends.” Contact us today to learn more.
