Social Skills

We use mainstream materials in our groups that are supplemented with teacher made videos, posters, and books.  These ²homemade² materials are written in simple terms, which allows for greater understanding of the concepts being taught.  These materials are highly motivating  and the students have an easier time relating to the situations and characters of the story.
