Why Does it Work?

Social skills training helps students learn how their actions and language affect others in various social scenarios. This allows for carryover to real-world experiences and contexts! It utilizes highly evidenced-based therapy techniques including video modeling, interactive lessons and role-play.

To ensure your child is getting the most out of these sessions, each week, you will receive a therapy report detailing each part of your session!

How is it Structured?

  • Video Modeling: Watching videos depicting a target skill and social scenarios in language tailored to the student’s level of understanding. Videos include comparing/contrasting examples, visuals, and animations to capture attention!
  • Interactive Lessons: Worksheets, board games, and visual supports relating directly to content taught in the videos and target skill area.
  • Role-Play: After learning about a target social skill, we can practice how to use it together in the real-world!
