Level UP! Is a group based, social-emotional skill development program for kids aged 5-8 years. Classes follow a structured social skills curriculum, with group learning objectives, evidence-based teaching strategies and strong clinical oversight from a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst to help kids with social communication difficulties find confidence in social situations. Our groups focus on skills like social reciprocity, social initiation, perspective-taking, self awareness, and emotion regulation.
How to register:
We pre-screen all students for group program readiness to ensure that this will be a productive placement for your child. When you get in touch and let us know that you’re interested in group programming, we will chat about your child, answer any questions you may have, and set up a time to do a group program assessment. We may recommend that your child starts in a 1:1 program for a period of time to build skills that will allow them to be successful in a small group environment.
Students in our group programs are screened for program readiness and matched based on age and abilities. This makes group program placements a great place for students to make friendships with like-minded peers.
Transitioning from a one-to-one placement to a classroom at kindergarten entry can be challenging for children, and group placements are a great way to provide a bridge to the lower classroom ratio that is often required at kindergarten entry.
Our group program staff create careful teaching opportunities that blend multiple children’s goals into a single activity. Children have the opportunity to learn from other students’ teaching and build social learning skills.
