The Mindful Advantage

We at EEC realize that balancing the stresses of school, work, life and family can be difficult. Former Wall Street executive and NYC parent, Jim Posner, founded The Mindful Advantage to help busy students, parents and professionals find that balance. Mindfulness is clinically proven to lower stress and anxiety, enhance focus and cognition, promote better communication, improve interpersonal relationships and build an overall better sense of well-being. Jim partners with schools, parents, and professionals from various industries to teach them how to incorporate Mindfulness into work and daily activities so they can achieve the above benefits and live a happier, more integrated life.

Social City

Social City runs social skills groups in multiple locations throughout New York City, including the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, West Village, Tribeca and Brooklyn. Social City meets with each family for an initial consultation to determine if they have an appropriate group, and if so, which group is most appropriate. Once groups are formed, a unique curriculum is created for each group based on the students' individual goals and areas of need. Groups are run by speech and language therapists with a high student to staff ratio. Social City runs on a 10-week semester during the winter, spring and fall, and a 6-week semester during summer.

A specific social skill is covered each week and therapists write e-mail summaries of sessions highlighting the target skill, activities and games used to reinforce the target skill, specific language used, as well as recommendations for carry-over work to reinforce skills in the child’s natural environment. A trip is built into the semester to allow for generalization of learned skills.

Enrollment closes after the first two weeks of each semester in order to ensure consistency, build upon previously learned skills, and maintain the dynamics of each group. The children form friendships and Social City believes it is important that the children can expect to come back to the same safe and comforting environment each week.

Theraplay NYC
