Taking names for Summer 2017
Participants will focus on social awareness and communication, cues and clues in
greetings and conversations, personal space for the purpose of enhancing peer friendship.
How: Learning will be embedded in a structured format that blends:
1. Mini lesson: direct social skills instruction through multi step procedures demonstrated
through modeling, discussion and/or role playing
2. Practice with peers in a cooperative activity including:
art, building challenges and good old board games.
3. Review and Reflection of our experience- during which we review our success and practice compliments.
The group will encourage play, kindness to others, effective expressive language, laughter,
silliness with boundaries, cooperation and problem-solving if we hit a rough patch!
