Our social skills group includes two behavior technicians and a maximum of six peers. The activities and games vary each session and are child-led. The purpose of our social skills group is to desensitize children to situations they may currently find aversive, such as circle time, transitions between activities, waiting, sharing, facing difficult tasks and not getting chosen first, and to teach them strategies and appropriate social behaviors they can use to master those situations.
We then encourage the children to generalize those new skills in their natural social settings, such as classrooms and playgrounds, to help them build and maintain healthy peer relationships.
