We are very excited to announce that we are now offering social skills group training sessions for your little ones through San Diego Behavior Solutions!

With COVID-19 putting a stop to our regular daily activities, children have been missing out on the opportunity to naturally develop their social skills and interpersonal relationshipsThat’s why we’ve decided to launch our Social Stars group!


We are thrilled to be able to bring back this group after a long hold through these unprecedented times. The two age groups for Social Stars are 6-8 year olds and 9-12 year olds. 

We will meet on Saturdays  at a time that is convenient for all participating families.

The social skills group will be led by Charlie Aguilar, our behavior specialist/ interventionist. Charlie has been practicing ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis), the Zones of Regulation, Pivotal Response Therapy, and other behavioral and social skill interventions for 7 years!

He has extensive experience in providing 1:1 in-home behavioral support/ modification for Carlsbad Unified School District. Charlie is proficient in current evidence-based practices and scientifically validated methodologies to help children of ALL ages (2 through teens) with behavioral or social skill challenges.

He specializes in successful behavioral modification and utilizing these empirically validated principles to achieve lasting, meaningful, and positive change in children’s and family’s lives.

This service gives your kiddo the tools they need in order to be prepared for a lifetime of healthy social interaction with others. Charlie will help your child practice for social situations with siblings, classmates, play dates, playground settings, birthday parties and more! 

Social skills are essential for future success in all aspects of life! Charlie is here to make sure your child is ready for when the world returns to “normal” or alternatively, the new normal. If you prefer one on one in vivo social skills training for your child, Charlie is also able to come directly to your home!
