Social Skills Training

Last Updated: 8/10/2020 7:56 PM

Socialization refers to how an individual interacts with others and participates in society.  For most people, socialization skills develop as a normal part of maturation.  Students with disabilities may not learn these skills unless they are taught in a focused manner with connections made for the students in a variety of environments.

Professionals who work with students with social-cognitive learning disabilities recognize that their inability to develop social skills and interpret the social variations of those around them brings deep and lifelong challenges that impact their lives socially, behaviorally, recreationally, and vocationally.  It is essential to recognize how decision making and personal safety can be at risk if people are not able to quickly adapt to and read social cues.  Within the program there are many opportunities both in the classroom and out of the classroom for the skills to be taught and practiced.
