The primary focus of Beyond the Bell is on strengthening social skills and practicing them in a secure, nurturing environment. In addition to interpersonal communication, social initiation, awareness, and emotional regulation, we break down the training into manageable, short-term goals such as complimenting peers, understanding likes and dislikes, participating in games, or determining the cause of emotion.
“Our program focuses on the skills our clients need to establish lasting friendships. It has been exciting to watch our clients progress in such a short period of time! This is such a fun and engaging program, and I am looking forward to all the skills and friendships that will result from it!”

Through individual and group collaboration meetings, “Beyond The Bell” also provides parents with the opportunity to participate. These meetings serve as a means of reviewing a child’s progress. The program is built upon a robust foundation of parent training. It provides caregivers with the tools and knowledge to extend these skills at home and in the community, fostering consistent growth and development. For instance, parents and caregivers are given strategies to support their children in managing difficult emotions, developing problem-solving skills, and practicing positive communication. Parents can also establish a supportive community with other caregivers through the group caregiver collaboration program.
