Practice and Learn Social Skills (PALSS)

Practice and Learn Social Skills (or PALSS) Club provides children ages 8 - 12 years old an opportunity to learn social skills and practice what they learn in a weekly session led by speech and language pathologist and occupational therapists.  Children will benefit from participating in only PALSS, part two, if they meet the participation criteria and are working toward the objectives below.  Children learn about topics such as active listening, holding conversation with a peer, team work, thinking of others and good sportsmanship.  They are given verbal, auditory and tactile cues to help them understand social actions that they do not naturally know.  Parent participation in weekly meetings is vital to assist in goal achievement in this program.
