Help! My 8 year old son is being bullied in school:( To make matters worse he is instigating the bully by trying run after him & be his friend, or trying to join the boy’s game despite being put down. He is also picked on because he does not pick up on non-verbal cues and can say inappropriate or annoying things. Who can I take him to for help?? Is there a program I can follow? Does a social skills group for that age exist? Would appreciate any leads. (I’m in Boro Park)

Perri hecht and Faigy shachner have social skills groups
Look into social worker/ counseling. They handle social/emotional skills
Does your school have a psychologist/social worker/administrator? They would have

Or a good program or book that I can do with him at home? His p3 teacher would work along with the program if I can find one..

Socialskillsplus.com is link to perri hecht. They should have a number
If there are any school speech therapists, ask them, otherwise call an agency 2 see if they run groups for these( social skills are an area worked on by both speech therapists amd social workers)
I use the book " Thats Life" social skills , which I enjoy, but it seems like yoy need something more problem solving based.
Look up in the linguisystems company " problem solving for adolescents"
Another thing you can do is call Relief, see if they have recommendations.
Unfortunately, social skills groups are not common in brooklyn for frum kids, even though there is a need.
And what little resources there are, they are expensive
If you can, reach out to Sara Chana Radcliffe or Rivka Schonfeld , who might have classes or books.
Good luck!
