Our skilled therapists target social skills teaching which includes:
- Joint attention
- Social referencing
- Perspective taking
- Theory of mind
- Making inferences
Deficits in these areas are common in many learners with autism and other developmental disabilities. In our programs, we work on teaching learners how to interpret information by considering the thoughts, emotions, intentions and knowledge of themselves and others, and responding in an appropriate manner to the situation.
Without the ability to be able to think about others and their thinking, making sense of space and others will be difficult. In addition, being able to take others’ perspective and understanding their point of view can help with reading and oral comprehension.
Our programs consist of material from different experts in the field of social and emotional development, such as Tony Atwood, Carol Gray, Michelle Garcia-Winner and many more.
