Cogwheel Coffee Club
February 6 - March 13th, 2019
This is an opportunity for our teenagers with pragmatic language impairment, social anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, and/or related social and emotional challenges, to stregthen and expand social experiences in a less structured, more naturalistic setting.
This interactive social group will meet for 6 weeks on Wednesday afternoons at one of our favorite local cafés in Bellevue, Washington, where teens will connect over delicious pastries, snacks, and drinks. Goals will be naturally embedded into the social experience, and may include: initiating conversation, joining/entering into a group conversation, assessing listeners' interests, sharing conversation control (reciprocity, talking about less preferred topics), social politeness (using a "social fake"), and developing friendships. Clients will also have a supportive opportunity to practice important life skills for increasing independence, such as ordering food and drinks and managing money.
Please contact Robin Goldberg, MA, CCC-SLP or Jamie Frank, OTR/L at the Cogwheel Clinic for Neurodevelopment for additional information and registration.
