Social Skills

Students participating in social skills groups will practice a variety of skills including sharing, taking turns, personal space, initiating and sustaining a conversation, perspective taking, expected and unexpected behaviors, and social problem solving.  These skills are taught through explicit instruction using social stories, video modeling, role-playing, individual and group exercises, and repetitive practice and application of skills.  Model Me Kids video modeling DVDs, Teach TownThink Social!, and Safe and Caring Schools are some of the materials used to teach these skills.
