Social Skills Materials

My students need interactive games to foster development in social skills and play and leisure skills, both areas frequently impacted by autism spectrum disorders.

My Students

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." -Dr. Seuss

I teach a class of 9 fabulous K-5 students impacted by autism.

Despite facing challenges my kids are generous, smart, and funny boys and girls. They love weather, animals, and reading. Their autism impacts their language, behavior, and social skills.

My Project

Through the materials requested students will engage in structured social activities to build requesting, attending, and language skills. Along with pivotal response and natural environment teaching, these structured social interactions will allow them to build the basic skills required when interacting with their typically developing peers. These skills will be used in the school, home, and community settings to ensure our students are successful in their interactions and friendship building.

Peer models are eager to engage with our students and through these supports can have structured ways to interact and our students will have mastered the prerequisite skills for these interactions.
