Social skills are a necessary foundation for social interaction and quality of life. Many children need support to gain the skills necessary to thrive in this area. We need peer buddies to help our skill builders learn. It’s all about making connections and learning how to communicate with everyone, regardless of their current social skills set – and most importantly making friends!

GBC aba is thrilled to provide a blended social skills program that provides naturalistic opportunities to interact with peers in a supported environment. Programming is designed by BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts) who also train staff and supervise social skills groups on a regular basis.
