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:

Social therapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on the social aspects of individuals’ lives. It helps individuals improve their social skills, build healthier relationships, and better navigate social situations. It can be particularly helpful for individuals with social anxiety, autism, or other conditions that affect social interactions.
An example of social therapy might be a group therapy session where individuals practice social skills with each other under the guidance of a therapist. The therapist might facilitate role-playing exercises, group discussions, or other activities to help individuals improve their social interactions.
Improving social skills often involves practice and learning. This can involve learning about social cues and norms, practicing communication and conversation skills, and receiving feedback and guidance from a therapist or coach. It can also involve exposure to social situations in a safe and supportive environment.
Social skills can generally be categorized into two types: interpersonal skills and communication skills. Interpersonal skills involve the ability to interact positively with others,such as showing empathy, managing conflicts, and cooperating with others. Communication skills involve the ability to effectively convey and receive information, such as listening actively, expressing oneself clearly, and understanding non-verbal cues.
