Social skills are an essential part of life and include conversation, body language, empathy, and the ability to make and keep friends.
When they don't come naturally, social skills can be directly taught and learned with practice. Let us help your child create their very own social network! We offer LOTUS BUDS social skills group sessions on a monthly basis in our Brickell office location.
Proudly servicing Miami, Broward, Puerto Rico and beyond via telehealth!
