Social skills are critical to students’ well-being. These skills help optimize classroom learning and school safety for students with special needs and diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The TeachTown Social Skills solution can help students focus on building positive peer relationships. At a time when the issue of bullying has become such an important part of the conversation, this program can help students cope with bullies and lessen the likelihood that they will become bullies themselves. Integrated throughout each volume of TeachTown Social Skills are themes that help students build confidence, make good decisions, and become successful students — all of which contribute to creating a safe and secure school environment.
Safety and Community Participation
This is an assessment that students can work on independently, prior to engaging in the Secondary School TeachTown Social Skills curriculum. Students will view a short video clip and will be asked to answer inferential questions to assess their cognition of the target social skills. The data from the screener helps users identify the domains and specific skills within the curriculum to target for intervention.
