Social interaction requires that a person understand and analyze a situation, draw upon a repertoire of social skills, make a choice and act. Often a situation requires that a child perform several of these skills simultaneously. Social competence is complex and the skills required to interact in a socially appropriate manner are numerous. However, these skills can be taught.
These products address specific situations by teaching the student appropriate behaviors and responses. These social training stories and tools provide a simple method that may be used at home, at play, at school, or in the community to teach or maintain social skills, daily living skills, or behavior management skills of students with autism spectrum disorder.
