Social Skills Today
Social Skills Today provides respite opportunities for families of individuals with developmental disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorders and other social, communication, sensory, and behavioral needs. We do this through various programs: summer camps, school year mini-break camps, social skills groups, and overnight camps.
It is our goal to provide social skills training, behavioral accommodations, and language-building activities in a safe and enriching environment for individuals functioning at all developmental levels ages 4 and above.
Social Skills Today manages several programs and events in the Gwinnett and Roswell areas including Spectrum Camps and Clubs and Roswell Adaptive Friendship Camp.
