A supportive, joyful community for children and young adults to learn and practice social skills
Thrive offers weekly social groups led by BCBA's and ABA services including individual programming, consultation and assessment. Together with our clients, we form a supportive community to learn pro-social skills and improve social competence.
SOCIAL LEARNING GROUPS
We offer a variety of social learning groups to meet the needs of children and young adults. Our offerings range from recreational, interest-based groups, to highly structured social groups utilizing ABA methodology.
We collaborate with families through consultation, in-home behavior therapy, and behavior support planning.
We offer school-based consultation, observation, assessments, and social skill instruction.
EVALUATION & ASSESSMENT
We provide evaluation and assessment of social behavior including Functional Behavior Assessments (FBA).
GET TO KNOW US
Thrive: A Social Learning Community, was founded by two BCBA’s who want to take social skills instruction beyond the school day. We recognize that although school is the front-line of social learning there is often a need for skill development beyond school hours.
