Friendship Group

The Friendship Group is designed for kids aged 7-12 to attend with a parent or guardian and focuses on social skills. Meetings will be held in-person at Albany Medical Center Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics, 391 Myrtle Avenue, Floor 3, Albany.

A master's level intern will teach social skills and monitor your child's progress in the session. Parents will learn the same skills with our PhD level interns, which will help foster a positive communication link between the parent and child.

Register here for the Friendship Group program.

Once we receive your registration, you will receive an email with additional information.  You will be billed through your child's insurance for attending a group session.
