What are Social Skills?
Social Skills are the ways we communicate and interact with each other. Sometimes, these skills are verbal, like writing or speaking. Other times, these skills are non-verbal, for example, using body language, facial expressions, eye contact, even personal appearance.
Why are Social Skills Important?
Social Skills are important because they are the tools that enable us to connect with other people in positive ways during our lifetime. These skills enhance our ability to socialize, learn, ask questions, receive help, and express our personal needs. Developing social skills in children is a vital part of preparing them for healthy interactions in
every aspect of life.
Our social skills program is designed to help children who regularly experience difficulties in social situations, but any child can benefit because these interactions help our youth learn and practice important life skills.
