For children with an ASD diagnosis, supporting the development of social skills is important for peer inclusion, emotional wellbeing, academic learning, and carrying forward in life.
In Social 1, we discussed challenges in social interactions, including communication, theory of mind, fixations, and sensory challenges. We also covered ways to help students develop fundamental social skills.
In this module, we will build upon what we learned in Social 1 and focus on supporting interactions and inclusion with peers. We will cover the importance of peers; preparing for social interaction; supporting inclusion; privacy, safety, and bullying, peer buddy systems; and circle of friends.
