TeachTown Social Skills has been designed for students with moderate and severe disabilities who often need extra support when it comes to mastering social skills. This comprehensive curriculum teaches socially-valid skills through animated video-modeling episodes, teacher-delivered lesson plans and student activities. In the elementary domains, students follow the adventures of four fun, relatable, animated characters as they learn to cooperate, listen, respect personal space, express emotions appropriately and more. Each target social skill is introduced and illustrated in a 2- to 3-minute animated episode and is part of a series of six days of lessons that include methods for differentiating instruction, generalization activities and homework assignments.
The middle school domains of TeachTown Social Skills focuses on increasing emotional intelligence and building self-management skills with modeling done with our elementary characters that have grown into middle schoolers. The program utilizes evidence-based practices such as Peer-Mediated Instruction and Intervention and visual supports to teach appropriate, positive social skills and replacement behaviors. Students practice the appropriate social skills in the school setting along with their peers, use interactive activities to build comprehension, and build their own social comics with the online Comic Strip Builder.
