About Us

The Social Skills Girls was founded when two behavior analysts came together with the same goal: making social skills training available to all. After years of experience working with individuals developmental disabilities, we saw that social skills classes are not readily available to everyone who may need them. We are here to give you a class that fits your schedule and budget, while still giving you access to the information that will help you be socially successful.

As behavior analysts, we believe it is important for everything we teach to be functional and supported by evidence-based research. Our program includes a planned curriculum that will give you the tools to succeed. Additionally, we offer boot camps and individual consulting. We follow the UCLA PEERS curriculum and our Instructors are certified to teach this curriculum. PEERS is a great opportunity for you or your child to engage in a social group safely and online from the comfort of home or your smart phone. If you have difficulties making friends, keeping friends, or holding a conversation, we encourage you to reach out to us to see how we can work together.

We understand the impact social skills have on our everyday life. We work with you and a social coach of your choice to help review and implement the skills you learn with us. Stay tuned for upcoming trainings!
