Steps and Strides social skills circle, as well as our summer camp social skills program, is run in association with MindWare Academy and is geared at teaching social skills to children with Dyslexia, Asperger’s, High Functioning Autism, ADHD, ADD and NLD. Children who do not have a diagnosis are welcome as well. The social skills circle and summer camp are designed to teach social skills in a fun, creative and structured environment.

The Beginning

Susan Mancini and Caroline George are special education teachers working with MindWare Academy. They have provided home based ABA and social skills programs to families in the community for ten years. Steps and Strides works with the student and their family to find strategies that work. We believe in working creatively as a team, bringing teachers, parents, and the child together. 

Steps and Strides began in our homes and in the homes of the children we worked with. As our programs grew we expanded to use space at MindWare Academy.
