Social Skills Program

Toronto IBI Services

Social Skills Program

Social skills groups are activity groups targeted to advanced learners diagnosed with autism that can benefit greatly from facilitated social interaction with other children possessing similar developmental skills. Toronto IBI's social groups are run throughout the year for children of various ages.

With activities planned for children with special needs, students attending Toronto IBI social groups will learn and practice age-appropriate social interactions with their peers. Children attending social groups are given the opportunity for social and emotional growth by targeting skills such as:

  • Cooperation and Sharing
  • Leadership Skills
  • Group Work
  • Socio-emotional Regulation
  • Peer Interaction
  • Self-Confidence

Toronto IBI Social Groups Offer:

  • Sports and group physical activities
  • Low ratio of students to instructors (maximum 4:1)
  • Instructors experienced working with children with ASD
  • Instructors trained in ABA and the use of positive behavioural strategies
  • Outside shadows for participants are welcome
  • Themed social groups

Collaboration with Families

We recognize the difficulties of having a child diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and understand that families will advocate for what is best for their child. Often this will include the incorporation of different classes and activities aimed at broadening their child's development.

At Toronto IBI, we always encourage families to involve their child in as many new activities and classes as possible, as increased exposure to new experiences result in an increase in learning opportunities. Toronto IBI will be there every step of the way to help aid you and your child as you navigate through different extracurricular activities.
