SERVICES I OFFER
With You Every Step of the Way
SOCIAL LEARNING GROUPS
Social learning groups are a powerful intervention tool. Children are carefully matched by ability level and interests. During the school year, groups meet weekly. In the summer, more intense social groups are often scheduled. Groups at all ages emphasize building social cognition skills. Groups often have a secondary focus such as anxiety, depression, anger management or narrative language.
YOUNG ADULT THERAPY
Young adults often face new social learning challenges in their rapidly changing lives. Whether transitioning to the new responsibilities of college life, coping with new stressors of finding and maintaining social relationships, or looking ahead to the job market, individual or group sessions can help.
SPEAKING & CONSULTATION
An engaging speaker, Dr. Vagin frequently presents across the US and Canada on topics related to social learning, facilitating conversation, and the use of online videos and gaming.
For some individuals, individual therapy is an appropriate intervention plan. Often parents and siblings are included in sessions.
Social learning challenges don't stop at 21. Understanding the complexities of the work environment and knowing how to meet social expectations can be complicated. Company consultation for workplace support can take many forms.
