Social Skills Groups

AP runs many different kinds of social skills groups for all ages and languages. We see these programs as critical to teach students social skills as well as develop their confidence and interest towards other peers. Students are assessed and goals are created to meet their own needs. A fun and exciting structure of activities are then created to meet those needs and objectives.
