SOCIAL SKILLS GROUP
Social skills like interaction, communication, understanding of social rules and norms, social conduct, expressions, verbal & nonverbal messages, emotional understanding etc, all form the part of our social world. Some of us are able to learn most of these social skills through observational learning or other learning methods but some children find social skills as one of the biggest challenge of their lives.
Children with ADHD and Autistic Spectrum Disorder face grave difficulties in their day-to-day interaction with not only their friends and teachers but also with their family members. The social world is not as obvious and simple for them as it is for us. Therefore, it is extremely important to train our children with the appropriate social skills at the right age.
Social skills group is conducted in a group of 5-6 children with 2-3 trainers for 1 hour 30 minutes once a week. The group is conducted for three months and pre and post assessment of the skills is done.
