Social Interaction Curriculum

Some young people can find social interactions and relationships difficult to understand intuitively. Specific tools and techniques are used to help children understand social situations in context. This may include; increasing social understanding, managing own behaviour, building up skills and confidence in dealing with specific social situations.
