Social Skills

These lessons are a based on the needs of our particular students whose special needs encompass many difficulties within a social setting.

During these lessons we cover a very wide range of topics including:
Self-awareness, confidence building, teamwork, friendship, empathy and patience to name a few.

The students learn various skills through games linked with the specific topic we are covering.
They complete assessment sheets during the year to see the progress they have made.

They self-evaluate skills such as:

  • feeling confident enough to ask for help.
  • do they find it easy to make friends.
  • do they find it easy to say sorry.
  • are they a good listener.
  • Waiting their turn.
  • Joining in new activities.

They complete a sheet at the beginning of the year and we revisit at the end to see the progress they have made.
