Why Teach Social Skills
Social skills are the abilities and competencies we use to navigate the social world. These skills tell us how to act and what to say in particular social situations. With strong social skills, kids and young adults can more easily build friendships, get along with others, work collaboratively in groups, handle frustrations, and have an overall improved quality of life.

While some kids and young adults learn social skills just from observing and interacting with those around them, many do not. These kids might struggle to develop friendships, have difficulty working in partners or groups, experience challenges in following directions, act in ways perceived as rude or mean, or misread the social cues of others. To these youngsters, the social world is confusing and challenging. Some students who may struggle with social skills specifically include those with autism, ADHD, ODD, intellectual disabilities, and a variety of other needs.

How to Use
These lessons and activities would be an asset to educators who want to teach social skills to young adults. This resource includes 4 separate units with a total of 40 lessons, each with several activities for extended practice. A total of 186 activities are included! Depending on the time of your class or sessions, you may choose to split up the lessons into several days. Alternatively, you can select which activities best suit the needs of your students. It is helpful to first start by giving the pre-assessment. Then, go through each lesson in order to build on critical social skills. After all social skills lessons are completed, give the post-assessment to show students their growth in learning new skills!
