We use research-proven methodologies to teach age appropriate relating skill and competencies, including social communication, problem-solving, decision making, self-management, and peer relations. Social skills training occur both in the home and community. For example, a behavior therapist may use a structured approach to explain to the child how to enact the desired behavior by providing examples and reinforcing targeted behaviors through questions, answers, and other feedback. An example of a more nuanced approach (often referred to as “incidental teaching”) is when therapist respond to child-generated utterances, interactions, and behavior to encourage the desired social skills (such as rewarding positive play).
