Social Sense Program

We know that the key to a person’s success in life is critically impacted by his or her social skills, even more so than by academic intelligence, according to a Harvard Graduate School of Education Study, 1998.

With this in mind, we designed our Social SenseTM Program. The sessions are meant to be fun and informative, utilizing a variety of videos, role-plays, games and exercises to teach and reinforce concepts. This multi-modal approach helps children apply the information and concepts outside of the sessions.

The Social Sense™ Program has four “Social Missions.”

  • Friendship formation and maintenance
  • Conflict resolution
  • Collaboration and team work
  • Self marketing – ability to maintain a good public image and “sell yourself” to others appropriately

 

The Social Sense™ Program is especially appropriate for children with Learning Disabilities. Specially trained and specialist social therapists conduct these programs in order to help children live a confident life ahead.

Our Social Therapies Help:

Children with impairment experience various social challenges, such as social anxiety, relationship problems, depression, or attention deficit if not treated at an early age. Anxiety, panic, shyness, or emotional pain can be replaced with emotional growth through learning new ways of perceiving, thinking, and interacting. The effect of our social anxiety therapy is empowering. Often, pain is recognized and released. The child develops new ways to respond to people, situations, and moments.

How to improve social skills for kids with a disability?

Kids with disability are special and face a range of more learning, physical, behavioral, and communication challenges as a comparison to other kids. These challenges can make it hard to make friends and interact socially.

Healthy Social interactions and Friendships help children and young people develop new skills. The more a child practices these skills and gains acceptance from peers, the more their confidence grows.

Here are some practical ways you can help develop the social skills of the child or young person in your care, keeping in mind their age and developmental capacity:

  • Encourage them to use basic greetings when they meet others.
  • Spent time with them, help them learn how to play in teams, and practice things such as sharing toys and taking turns to model the kind of social behavior you want to encourage, for example, listening and responding to others, using appropriate body language, starting a conversation, sharing information, and dealing positively with conflict.
  • When other kids are around, plan activities you know the child or young person can do confidently
  • Praise them when they do something good, for example, greet others, share toys, etc.
  • notice if they’re getting tired or overwhelmed and help them manage their feelings
  • Never force them to interact if they want to be alone
