What We Do

Socialization Club

The Socialization Club meets every Monday and Wednesday from 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM!

This program is designed to teach children, ages 14-22, various social and life skills. In using games, worksheets and readings, group activities, and scenario role playing, students learn appropriateness as well as skills to use in every day specific situations.

Variety Socialization Program uses the Program for Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS) as a guideline for curriculum development as well as course material designed specifically for our students. At the start of each month, students work together to complete a “Month Topic” board. From this board, they practice talking about current events, holidays, and topics throughout that month. Each week, a different pre-selected theme will be the focus of learning and development.
