Age Group: 8 to 9
Sessions: Sundays from 11:30am to 12:30pm
Location: Robert E. Ryan Park in Rancho Palos Verdes

This group is ongoing and meets for 60 minutes, every Sunday from 11:30am to 12:30pm, at Robert E. Ryan Park in Rancho Palos Verdes. This is an advanced social skills group which focuses on the value of healthy friendships through fun, collaborative activities. At this age children start to exert more independence and navigating their social world becomes more complicated. Pivotal skills such as self-awareness, social-awareness and self-regulation are targeted each session.

Who would benefit from this group?

This is an advanced social skills group which targets more nuanced skills such as self and social-awareness skills such as body language, tone and appropriate assertiveness.

SBKC is unable to serve students who require significant behavioral intervention. Students who have a limited ability to communicate their needs, exhibit aggressive or eloping behaviors would benefit from a more staff intensive environment than SBKC. If you are unsure if your child is a good fit for our program, please contact us and we will get back to you to help make that determination.


Sessions are held weekend mornings at Ryan Park in Palos Verdes, CA. We use the activity room, the patio and the playground area so we can be comfortable inside when sitting down but also enjoy the fresh air during outside play.
