Social Skills

Real Life Scenarios Help Children and Teens with Developmental Disabilities, Including Autism, learn Social Skill Development and Healthy Conflict Resolution

Students with autism and other developmental disabilities need help navigating social situations and understanding emotional interactions. Books and DVDs with real life scenarios and photos of different emotions teach children and teens with developmental disabilities, like autism, healthy social skills and appropriate communication - encouraging self advocacy and positive behavior. Our Know the Code DVD covers the wide range of social situations that elementary students find on the playground and in the classroom. Knowing how to interact with their peers gives children with special needs more confidence and encourages social skill development in children with autism. Many individuals with special needs encounter challenging social situations in the community, and knowing how to react appropriately can be a big boost to their self confidence. Teens in transition with autism will find valuable tips in Connections in the Workplace and Dynamite Emotions when dealing with conflict resolution with effective social skills at work. In addition, the Mary on the Move DVDs demonstrates positive behavior models and self determination that is essential for independent living and healthy relationships.

How well they are able to meet those challenges can make the difference between a good day or a very bad one. A good year or a very bad year. Good or bad for them and for you too as acceptance vs. rejection are the things they're most likely to bring home to you.
