West Metro Learning Connections (WMLC) has helped over 1800 children and teens lead happier, more social lives by working in partnership with schools, agencies and parents to provide an integrated social skills program for each child.
We don’t just teach social skills — we teach social thinking and understanding so that children can apply what they learn wherever they go.
We help children and teens adapt to new social settings and have fun while learning social skills to FIT IN & SHINE!
Developing Social Skills and Understanding Since 2001!

Therapeutic Recreation Opportunities:
One of our most exciting and popular activities for kids ages 8 and up! Once-a-month group sleepovers provide an awesome opportunity for kids to connect, hang out and socialize. Community outings are offered during select sleepovers. Bowling, BBQs, swimming and going out to eat are a few examples of past sleepover activities. Sleepovers provide guided and facilitated therapeutic education to improve self-management skills and promote responsibility.
Drop-off: At 5:00 pm. Pick up: At 10:00 am. (Hotel and camping sleepover times may vary.)
