The social skills program at Hall Mercer serves children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) ages 6 to 12. Small groups facilitated by skilled staff are designed to help participants improve social skills and interact successfully with peers. Evidence based strategies from several curricula designed to teach social skills across a variety of domains are used. Participants will receive a social skills assessment to guide the development of individualized treatment goals. Parents are provided a weekly lesson overview and strategies for practicing skills at home.
Children participate once per week for 12 weeks with peers their own age. This program is available for private-pay and also to children eligible for Medicaid reimbursed services.
We are currently accepting new children. If you'd like more information, please contact Diana Cooney at 215-573-1911.
