Bridge Builders is a small group social skills program for highly verbal 3- to 6-year old children that focuses on increasing social communication and play skills with peers, facilitates understanding and managing emotions, and provides direct instruction in social cognitive concepts, including elements of Social Thinking™ by Michelle Garcia Winner.
In order to best tailor the curriculum to the unique developmental needs of the children in the group, we now offer Bridge Builders at two levels: Bridge Builders I and Bridge Builders II.
- Bridge Builders I: For 3-4 year old children.
- Bridge Builders II: For 5-6 year old children.
Each class is led by 1 to 2 certified speech-language pathologists and may be supported by graduate students in communication disorders from the University of Texas at Dallas. Class size is limited to 6 children.
Enrollment for the Bridge Builders program is offered one or two afternoons per week, by semester.
