Community Psychiatric Center’s Social Skills Groups and Parent Support Groups

A group of kids having a successful Social Skills Group session.

Our goal at CPC is to provide a wide array of treatment options to help children reach their fullest potential. To that end, we offer social skills groups that help children learn better ways to make and keep friends. Children with autism can present as delightful and endearing, but sometimes don’t know what to do in order to maintain a social encounter. Our social group aims to greatly improve that problem. It’s also evident that children with ADHD tend to be somewhat impulsive and, at times, may do and say things that other children find off-putting. Again, our social skills group targets and remediates those tendencies.

Our High-Functioning Autism Social Skills Groups

We offer a weekly group at our Monroeville office that currently meets every Tuesday from 5:15 to 6:45 PM both in-person and virtually. The children in the current group are between 9-12 years of age, but we will broaden the age range and offer additional days and times as more children enroll.

Our Upcoming ADHD Social Skills Group

CPC is excited to offer a newly forming ADHD support group that will be run out of our Wilkinsburg office, in-person and virtually. If your child has been diagnosed with ADHD and occasionally struggles with friendship skills, please consider contacting our office. 

Parent Support Group

At the same time as the Social Skills Group, we offer a Parent Support Group. While their child is in their group, parents can get together and support one another. They can get their questions answered, and learn from one another and the group leader (that would be me 😊). We serve refreshments.

If you’re interested to learn more, or join one of our support groups, please contact…

Feel free to email me directly at jcarosso@cpcwecare.com and we’ll get the enrollment process started.

Happy socializing 😊
