IBHS Social Skill Training Update

Thanks to a growing number of employees (77 now!) participating in this year’s employee giving campaign through regular payroll deduction, Imagine!’s Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) has been able to provide meaningful social skills trainings to kids, adolescents, and young adults.

Together we will raise about $8,000.00 to help support social skills training for this fiscal year! You can view the video below to learn more about this exciting program.

Over the summer, IBHS hosted two social skills sessions that met once per week for two hours over a four-week period. Each session was broken down into three age groups; kids ages 3-7, adolescents ages 7-14, and young adults ages 14-18. Over the course of these sessions, IBHS hosted 21 individuals. All participants had the opportunity to partake in play schemes that facilitated attending and orienting themselves toward a play partner, eye contact, waiting and sharing skills, and opportunities for natural interactions with other group participants and typical peers.

We are excited to announce that, thanks to your generous support, IBHS will be continuing their social skills program on February 6, 2017. Check out the flyer below to learn more.
