Kids Social Skills Group in Simi Valley, Ca

For Boys and Girls Aged 9 Through 11. Helping children feel connected and supported.


As a parent, you know how painful it can be to see your child trying to connect with other kids, but struggling to do so. You see how easy it may seem for other kids, and you worry your child is starting to notice too. 

You know your child is fun, sweet, and kind, but for many reasons it’s hard for these qualities to shine through in social situations. For many kids, difficulties with controlling impulses, managing big emotions, being flexible when things don’t go their way, or just not understanding social rules can all play a role in making social connections difficult to come by. 

In our kids social skills group, we create a safe and supportive environment for your child to first and foremost recognize their unique positive qualities and strengths. From here, we help our group members learn, discuss, and most importantly practice social skills that can help them feel more confident around peers.

Some of the topics we will discuss and practice in this group include:

  • Perspective taking

If you are interested in your child joining this group, sign up for your free group screening today. In this group screening, you will meet with one of the two group facilitators, learn more about this group, and share your goals for the group. Your child is also welcome to join for a portion of this meeting as well. At the end of the group screening, you will be able to decide if this is the right group for you.

Well, we’re here to support you in Simi Valley.

Simi Psychological Group was founded to serve a great need in the Simi Valley community. As we’ve spent time in this town and gotten to know it’s residents we have recognized that it’s a really tight-knit community. We know how dedicated the people who live here are to building one another up and helping their community grow.
And in the process, we’ve also seen a lot of families who are under stress. Who feel pressures in their lives to meet high standards. And sometimes this pressure keeps them from feeling like they are in charge of the direction of their lives.

Change is possible. You and your family can see things from a new perspective, learn to trust yourselves, and experience long-lasting change that each of you has control over.
