School Children

The school-age years bring new and exciting challenges and rewards for children.  Research conducted on school-aged children show that peer relationships have a profound impact on children’s overall development.  Children who have good relationships with classmates are often less lonely, less depressed, miss fewer days of school, and have greater joy in school.  For these reasons, parents and professionals are often concerned about children who have problematic peer relationships and difficulties with social skills.  In particular, children who struggle with peer acceptance and reciprocal friendship building are at greater risk for increased problems in elementary school.  Such children are at risk for bullying, social isolation, sadness and school related difficulties. If you are concerned about your child, you may wish to consult with a counselor or psychologist.  Pediatricians and school personnel can also be valuable resources.

At the Triumph Center, our mission is to help school age children lead healthier and more successful lives.  We understand that every child has unique gifts and challenges, so we work closely with our children to identify and build on strengths, while offering strategies to help them overcome common challenges.   We offer supports through social skills groups, counseling, consultation and a summer therapeutic camp.  Our services may benefit school age children who are struggling with the following issues or concerns:

  • Bullying
