The goal of Think Social is to foster in our students the skills required to achieve success in social situations. The realm of social competence is a difficult one, as we do not consciously “teach” social skills as we would math or reading.
At Think Social, students are immersed in learning through hands-on activities, games and role play that help them fit into some of the social situations they deal with and nurture their self-esteem to feel confident as well.
This program is specifically designed for children with learning disabilities and ADHD who have internalizing and externalizing social skills difficulties.
External social skills – one or more of dominating, hyperactive, impulsive, prone to outbursts, bossy, can make friends but has difficulty keeping them.
Internal social skills – one or more of shy, anxious, clingy, withdrawn, difficulty making friends, difficulty starting or joining conversations.
