Social skills groups
ABACS is seeking students ages 2+ with social skills needs to join our social skills groups. Groups meet weekly at the ABACS Clinic in Woburn, MA for 2-3 hours. Social Skills Groups (SSGs) held at the clinic maintain a staff to student ratio of 1:1, with a BCBA assigned to oversee the overall service delivery. Behavior Therapists often lead or support the groups. Groups include 2-6 students who have similar behavioral and learning objectives and similar age. Applications and assignments for groups are accepted and made via rolling admissions, so please inquire about our groups at any time if you are interested!
