Social Skills Training
Identifying areas that children can improve in their social abilities to help them make friends, keep friends and have healthy relationships with peers.
Social skills training involves assessing specific areas of social functioning (including self-awareness and self-esteem) and then targeting deficits with drills and exercises to improve functioning. Social skills break down into self-awareness/self-esteem, as well as body language, voice control, conversational skills and assertiveness. We assess each participant in these five areas and target our training where we believe a person struggles or experiences deficits in functioning.
We employ widely-used methodologies including “Talkabout” and “Social Thinking”, as well as our own innovations. Programs range from board and video game groups to mystery nights as well as Lego building sessions.
