Celebrate Ability Virtual Groups
Safe environments to encourage active participation and practice social skills.
Celebrate Ability virtual groups are designed with different levels and abilities in mind, to strengthen the social interaction and communication skills of children, teens, and young adults with ASD.
Allowing children and teens the opportunity to practice these skills with and without others in a low pressure environment, matched to their abilities and needs, can lead to development of communication and social skills more readily.
We believe that participants will learn through their positive experiences, and we provide a safe environment to encourage active participation and practice social skills. If a participant is not ready for a virtual group setting, virtual 1:1 sessions may be scheduled. Supports we provide to promote socialization and independence include:
The Club is a safe hang out for teens and young adults to build friendships through participation in online chats and games. Participants practice the building blocks to foster friendships and increase social skills.
Music, which activates a different part of the brain than speech, has been a popular and calming way for children and teens to enjoy socializing.
|Girl’s Tea Time|
Tea Time is an offshoot of Club Celebrate for girls in our program and is aimed at creating a safe space for them to create and foster friendships.
|Gaming /Anime Club|
This group incorporates gaming, role play, and hands-on activities to enable another way of creating friendships and practicing social skills. Basic social concepts are introduced. Group goals focus on improving self regulation, conversational skills and turn taking.
ZamDance is a high impact dance fitness program for children and adults that introduces a structured environment while allowing the dancers to move at their own pace. The classes also keep the students engaged while learning different dance steps such as merengue, jazz, and hip-hop. https://zamdance.com/
|Celebrate Social Skills|
Celebrate SS is a more structured group aimed at building communication and social skills. It focuses on several main topics – Self esteem building, social cues, self regulation, emotional literacy, and social communication. Children and teens are grouped into classes of 3-6.
TI Service Plans for each participant
A family consultant will work with each child and family to identify individualized goals and objectives for each participant and assess progress regularly.
Virtual Groups for Families!
Celebrate Ability believes that a child and teen’s family is vitally important to their success. To help bolster this success, we have started two new programs.
These groups, divided into elementary and middle school groups, are focused on siblings of children and teens in our program. It provides an accepting space for siblings to interact and share their experiences. Elementary groups include activities such as art projects and book reading.
Celebrate Ability’s parent support group is moderated by family consultants and touches on a variety of topics relating to parenting a child with ASD and gives parents the opportunity to connect with to discuss with one another, the challenges facing parents of children on the Spectrum.
