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.”
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.
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.
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:
