Social Language Groups-Preschool, Lower Elementary, and Upper Elementary

Cy-Hope is starting Social Language Groups that will be co-led by our Speech Language Pathologist and one of our counselors. 

The focus of the group will be building social and emotional skills in a small group setting. This will allow your child to learn how to form friendships, communicate effectively and appropriately with peers, and to increase their self-esteem and confidence.
