Social Skills Groups/Lego Groups - Center for ADHD

Social Skills Groups for Boys based on the Social Thinking methodology
Our social skills groups and Lego Groups are our clinical services offered weekday afternoons and evenings.   Center for ADHD is unlike any other social skills provider in the Philadelphia area or Southern New Jersey.  
As one of the only social skills providers in the area to have received a Social Thinking Clinical Training Level 1 Certificate of Completion Ryan Wexelblatt, Center Director is known for his success in teaching social skills to students and young adults who present with ADHD, Asperger’s and higher-verbal autism.    
Center for ADHD does not utilize a “one size fits all approach” in which students are grouped together simply by age or diagnostic label.   Each student who participates in our social skills group and Lego groups is assessed so we can group them appropriately, with similar-age students who share similar social learning needs.
