Social skills curriculum and training
The Secret Agent Society is evidence based social skills instructional program for children 8-12 years old. Social skills are taught in a small group (4 to 6 children and 2 experienced clinicians) format. The program includes between session practice with a very appealing computer game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEJuvqMgbI0
