A New Year!
First Semester in Review
We wrapped up our first round of small groups and lunch bunches on topics such as friendship skills, divorce care/family change, and social skills, and will be starting new groups this quarter.
We look forward to the rest of this school year! Please contact us if we can be of service to you and your child.
