Dedicated to learning, understanding, applying and communicating effective methods of social teaching for each individual and those who support them.

The Social Learning Center offers individual and group services to our clients and their families. Treatment objectives range from teaching social skills utilizing a behavioral approach, to improving pragmatic language (i.e., understanding and using language to effectively communicate with varying partners), to developing a client’s social thinking by breaking down and explicitly teaching perspective-taking and context awareness skills.

Through a variety of effective, research-based strategies, our clinical staff teach students to:


  • Recognize the different levels of their own and others’ social minds
  • Navigate their behaviors while considering how others perceive and respond to them
  • Adapt to the people and situations around them – even in casual settings ("hanging out") – to achieve social and personal success

We also offer individual counseling services, individual speech/language therapy, social communication evaluations and professional development. Learn more about our services »
