KidsPeace groups help children build social skills, cope with bullying
FOUNTAIN HILL – Growing up can be tough, but KidsPeace offers groups to help children and teens feel more at ease in social situations.
Our Teen Asperger’s Group helps middle school-aged children with Asperger’s disorder build social skills. The group meets at 5 p.m. Wednesdays.
Our Preschool Autistic Spectrum Group, for children ages 3 to 7, helps develop early social skills through group involvement. It meets at 5 p.m. Mondays.
Coping with Bullying is a group to help middle school kids overcome the effects of being bullied. It will be held at 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays, starting July 10.
All groups are held at 1650 Broadway and are run by a licensed clinician. Insurance companies are billed, so the only fee is any applicable co-pay.
Anyone interested in signing up a child for one of the groups should call 610-799-8600 and ask for Lauren, Maryellen or Fritzie.
