I’m now the Clinical Director of the Sequoia Kids Sunday program…

I am happy to announce that I have accepted the position of Clinical Director for  Sequoia Kids  Sunday program.  Sequoia Kids is a social skill development and recreational program for students ages 8-15 who need help improving their social skills.  The program serves students diagnosed with ADHD, Aspergers Syndrome, High-functioning autism spectrum diagnoses and learning differences which effect social skills development.  The program is run by  Camp Sequoia , an overnight summer camp for kids who need help with social skills.  The program runs for 2 Sundays a month, from October through May, and incorporates fun activities with a Social Thinking group.   Social Thinking is a framework developed by Michelle Garcia Winner  to help students with average to above average verbal intelligence improve their social cognition.   The Social Thinking approach teaches kids to think within a social context and adjust their communication and behavior accordingly rather than just helping them to memorize surface skills.  I was asked to join the program based on my experience working with this population at Hill Top Preparatory School. In the program I will be facilitating Social Thinking groups ,providing supervision to the group facilitators, and working with the participants parents..  I’m very excited, and looking forward to getting started!
