Social skills are a vital part of our everyday life. For individuals who struggle with social skills, they can have challenges at home, school, and in community. Therapists often have difficulty breaking down social skills into teachable steps within constantly changing environments. The purpose of this workshop is to help therapists better understand social skills and strategies for teaching social skills that can be generalized to various environments.
