Imagine A Place Where Your Child Is Guaranteed To Have Fun Making New Friends.
All children deserve to have friends. Friendships are an important part of life and a key to happiness. While most children are born with the ability to learn the necessary social skills to make friends without any extra help, some are not. For them social relationships are a mystery that they just don't seem to get.
It is important to realize that it is not a reflection of their intelligence. Many children who have trouble socially are incredibly intelligent. Some even have a gifted use of language. The thing they don't have is the ability to learn the necessary skills for navigating the social world without some extra help from the right kind of expert.
Fortunately help is available.We have been successfully helping children develop their social skills since 2006. We are one of the longest running, and the best known social skills program in Westchester County because of our success in helping kids like yours attain the necessary social skills to develop new friendships and live a more enriched life.
We Do This by Teaching
Your Child These Essential Social Skills
- How to express himself (or herself) more effectively and in more ways: Children who have trouble socially often have trouble effectively expressing themselves. Some get frustrated and act out while others withdraw and isolate themselves. Unfortunately this often leads those who don't understand them to mislabel them as a behavior problem. When your child discovers how to express himself more effectively not only will it make it easier for him to connect with other children, it will also improve his behavior and how others view him.
- How to read and use body language: Most children who have trouble socially have difficulty using and understanding body language. Unfortunately, research shows that between 60 and 70 percent of all human communication is through body language. That means body language is a key tool that allows us to identify and express emotions. It is also why it is important that we help your child develop the ability to read and use body language.
- How to have self confidence and a sense of self: It is hard to make friends or stick up for yourself if you don't think you can. Part of our program's success is teaching children "that they can". This is instrumental in them taking their newly learned social skills from our program and out into their everyday lives.
The best way to teach children is to engage them in a fun and exciting way that they can relate to. This leads to the fastest and most enduring changes. It makes sense if you think about it. Everyone has difficulty learning when they are bored or forced to do things they don't like. This is even truer when it comes to children. They don't have the experience or the ambition that we have as adults to get through arduous tasks. They need to have fun in order to learn.
That is why we use different types of art and play to teach social skills. We want to make sure that your child has fun while discovering the skills to make his everyday life better. It is no wonder why parents tell us time and again how much their child looks forward to coming to class. Whether it is one of our art and play groups, or one of our Lego® groups, you can count on your child loving being a part of the Where I Can Be Me® social skills program. I guarantee it.
Three Other Unique Benefits
You Can Count On
- You have a risk free, "The Right Decision", money back guarantee: That means if any time before the start of your 5th class you decide you are not absolutely thrilled, for any reason, we will give you all of your money back. It is that simple. That means you have over a month to try the classes without any risk or worry. That way you can sit back, relax and be confident that you have made the right decision for your child.
- Small classes that are led by board certified experts in social communication: You can expect there to be no more than 6 children per class, sometimes less. This ensures that your child will get plenty of help and not get lost. We also have individual therapy just in case you would like a little extra special help for your child.
- Your child will be placed based on his or her ability: Too many social skills programs use age, gender or disorder as their basis for placement. While those things can be used as guides, your child's ability and needs are the most important criteria for placement. You do not have to worry about your child being too advanced or not advanced enough when you join our program. We build our classes around the children so that in each class every child has a model and is a model. That is a key to our Facilitated Peer Modeling™ structure, and to our success.
More than just a place to learn to make friends, the Where I Can Be Me® social skills program is a place where children AND their parents go to make friends. While other programs discourage their clients from becoming too friendly, we encourage our members to do so. Our members come early, stay late and even go to each other's events such as birthday parties. We think it is a great thing and believe you will to.

"This class was a great help in getting my daughter to socialize and feel comfortable speaking around her peers.
Before coming to the class she was quiet around her peers. But since she started taking the class she has begun to be more comfortable and talkative while playing with other kids.
The teacher is absolutely wonderful and is amazing when working with all the kids."
"Where I Can Be Me has been a wonderful experience for my son. He made his first friend here at the first class. He loves coming to class, seeing his friends and has learned so much."
Highland Mills, NY
"My son has been coming regularly to a Saturday morning social skills group. It has been a very positive experience for us. His therapists are wonderful and he has made huge progress within the class. He is made to feel totally welcomed and comfortable. He truly is part of a group here and I would happily recommend the programs and practice to anyone. "Where I Can Be Me" sums up perfectly the ethos of Isa Marrs. He loves being here!"
Old Greenwich, CT
"My son is 5 ½ years old and began Isa's social group 7 weeks ago. Leanne and Remya have done a wonderful job of integrating my son into the group. He looks forward to the "playgroup" every Friday. Each week's progress report from Leanne captures the session as if I was a "fly on the wall" looking in.
My Son has moved forward in social & language skills at a solid pace through his experience. We are so happy with this program and recommend to children who need to develop stronger social & language skills."
