PlayDate! – Social skills classes ages 3-15

PlayDate is a developmental and play-based social skills group designed to support foundational social cognitive competencies. These small, 75-minute groups are co-taught by two ConnectEd Developmental Specialists on a weekly basis and include:

  • parent-only information sessions 
  • weekly written information
  • individualized child goals
  • individual/family/school visit sessions (12 week session only)

Our Philosophy: Although “social” is not always easy, PlayDate uses evidence-based practices to increase self-awareness and social outcomes while keeping our groups fun, and our children engaged. Our developmental curriculum pulls directly from the current literature including Developmentally Appropriate Practice (http://www.naeyc.org/DAP), Michelle Garcia Winner’s I-LAUGH and We Thinkers Curriculum (www.socialthinking.com), and the ABA literature. We are just a phone call or email away if you have any questions about the program.

Format:  Groups run in semester long 12-week sessions in Fall and Winter/Spring.  There is an additional 6 week session offered in late spring.  PlayDate! groups are scheduled in the late afternoons, Monday-Thursday.

Cost: $1800 per 12-week session ($600/month)

12-Week Sessions Fall/Winter and Winter/Spring

6-Week Session Late Spring 

Jump Start to School – (groups run 1 hour each day)

The Jump Start to School Program prepares children for the transition back to school after a busy summer. Children entering kindergarten through 6th grade are welcome to attend this week-long, daily group experience. We will use role-play, video-modelling, hands-on activities and discussions to remind, prepare and directly practice the skills used during those first few weeks of the new school year. Cost: $750.00

How to join us: Initial intake process includes required paperwork and an intake call with our Office Manager (christine@connected.us.com) Once space is available, children will be individually screened to determine appropriate and well-matched group placement with a 60 minute individual session with one of our specialists. 

The waitlist is currently 6-12 months. We appreciate your patience. Please know that we are committed to adding more high quality ConnectEd team members to meet the needs of our community. It is our goal to resume our intake process beginning August 1, 2022.
