Social Language Groups

Little Tesoros is excited to offer a variety of group programs that address pragmatic communication skills, also described as social skills or social communication.

These abilities determine how we use verbal and non-verbal language to communicate with others.

A child may be effective in saying words clearly, using correct grammar, and understanding complex information but may still have a communication difficulty if they have not yet mastered the rules of social interaction that may seem instinctual to some.

Please see the links below for more information about social language skills.

Early Literacy and Language Workshop for Parents

Little Tesoros is passionate about getting books into the hands of children and making reading a fun experience they grow to love. Parents can help turn this dream into reality.

Parents are a child’s first influential teacher and therefore play a pivotal role in fostering early literacy and language skills. Sharing quality book-reading experiences with their child is critical for developing a strong reader.

This workshop teaches parents how to do just that. Speech and language knowledge, as well as the Read With Me! curriculum, are used to support parents and their young reader.

The workshop will cover:

  • Why is reading important?
  • Strategies for making reading fun for kids and parents
  • Basic early speech and language milestones
  • Q&A opportunities to ask questions and share ideas

Dates and Times: November 3rd (Part I), November 10th (Part II) from 9:30am - 11:30am

Cost: $100 to attend both workshops

Location: Cedar Park Clinic at 1301 Medical Parkway Suite 130, Cedar Park, Texas 78613

Presented by: Kendall Fritsch, MS, CCC-SLP

  • Please note, this workshop is for parents/caregivers only. Childcare will not be provided.
  • This program does not teach children to read.

Social Butterflies

This group is for children ages 6-10 and aims to build a foundation of vital social communication skills for success in a variety of social settings.

Social skills can be difficult to target in a one-on-one therapy session and adapting to ever-changing social situations in the classroom and community may be frustrating and scary for a child.

Social Butterflies will closely match children into a group of four who, with the help of a licensed clinician, will work as a team to learn how to experience healthy interpersonal interactions.


  • Taking the perspective of others
  • Making inferences
  • Body language when listening
  • Identifying complex emotions

A group size of 3-5 kids provides a supportive and nurturing environment where children can learn new, challenging social skills.

Social Butterflies is a great opportunity for your child to learn new social skills in a small group setting for success in the home and in classroom settings.

Parent involvement through a follow-up consultation will help your child to navigate this complex area of language development as they grow into a Social Butterfly!

Dates: 12/19, 12/20, 12/27, 12/28, 1/02, 1/03

Cost: $225 for six, 1-hour classes

Social Caterpillars

Often, social communication skills are difficult to practice in one-on-one therapy.

Social Caterpillars is a great opportunity for your young child to practice critical early social skills with other age-matched and social-emotional matched peers for future success in the community and in a classroom setting.

This group is created for children ages 3-5. It will consist of 4 to 5 children and 1 speech language pathologist. Sessions are 2 days a week for 4 weeks and last for 1 hour.

There will be a follow-up parent consultation at the end to ensure that parents can carry over techniques learned at home.

The following is a general description of the program components you can expect from Social Caterpillars:

  • Directed teaching of lessons throughout the four weeks to promote:
    1. Engaging in various types of play and sharing with peers
    2. Learning to identify and manage simple emotions
    3. Independently requesting objects from peers and asking for help
    4. Waiting and taking turns with peers
  • Guided practice in using lessons that have been discussed in pre-planned and spontaneous interactions, such as in tabletop, circle, and play activities

The small group size and adult-to-child ratio will promote quality practice with social communication skills necessary for larger groups. With ample opportunities for children to interact with others, they will flourish into a social caterpillar.

Batter and Chatter

The Batter and Chatter program is a great opportunity for your child to build literacy and learn new social skills in a small group setting for success in the home and in classroom settings.

Language and baking occur naturally together. Children really enjoy baking because it can be a stimulating sensory activity as well as a language rich activity.

Following directions, sequencing, and vocabulary skills are all required when you’re whipping up something tasty in the kitchen!

Additionally, social language goals can be easily targeted (e.g. topic maintenance, turn-taking, appropriate topics, etc.) when baking in a group.

One World Karate

One World Karate offers specific and comprehensive instruction for all children regardless of their special needs. There is a program that fits your child.

These classes are specifically designed for children with needs that are often addressed through occupational or physical therapy. The classes are designed to be adaptable to student’s specific needs and current limitations.

Core strength, focus, discipline, and self-esteem are at the heart of our fun-filled lessons.

The students will learn real martial art skills, progressing through the belts via participation. Class attendance is the determining factor in promotion.

Belt tests are opportunities to build emotional strength and self worth through demonstrating progress. The classes are for ages 3 and up.

Martial arts provide numerous benefits to all practitioners regardless of needs or abilities, but a martial art program taught by a teacher who understands the special needs inherent in a diverse population can have a profound impact on the participants.

From a physiological standpoint, martial arts develop both muscle memory and fitness. Many studies show that martial arts can help develop neurological pathways within the brain itself.
