So’Cool Club is an after-school 14-21 hour a week ABA therapy program that concentrates on social engagement, communication and friendship skills for elementary aged learners. Some of our Learners need additional help learning to be a good friend, play group type games and engage socially. Then this the group for them!

"Can we have our birthday party here?"...a current client
Our 50/50 model helps to build individual skill, group skills and build friendship skills.
Social 50% : They will think they are just playing but they are learning! In a small group with individual Learning Coaches supports, they come to gather for cooperative activities, games, sports, and social skill lessons to understand and implement the concepts and skills for the daily/weekly lesson such as being a leader, turn taking, greetings, conversations, understanding someone else’s perspective, friend files, emotions, how to play group games, body/eye contact orientation, social language development & scripts. These help build friendships, allow them to participate in community activities and engage with other peers their own age.
Direct 50%: Learners work 1:1 with the Learning Coaches on their individualize goals based on their evaluation. These may include areas such as language development, executive functioning skills, daily independent living skills, behavior related to learning in collaboration with their school team for supporting learner in multiple environments.
The So'Cool stands for Socially Cool Club! We call it the So'Cool Club because we want them to want to come to a fun place to learn and no one at this age wants to tell their friends they are going to therapy.
Why is it called the So'Cool Club?
Why are they called Learning Coaches are they Behavior Techicians?
We call all our staff Coaches. This goes along with our Team mentality at the clinic. It's way cooler to say "I'm going to see my Coach!" then my therapist or Technician. Plus, a Coaches job is to get their performer to be the very best they can be! That's our goal too! But yes, our staff are registered behavior technicians and highly trained in social skills.
Our Parents are integral part of our team! Parent meet weekly with our BCBA to learn, grow and share together. Through these meeting we hope to support and coach parents to feel more confident through concept learning, problem solving, success sharing and practice in supporting and help their child grow and learn.
