Many children do not have an available repertoire of social and coping strategies. When faced with an upsetting or vulnerable situation, these students can easily turn to violence, anger or self-harm.  Conversely, when students learn and develop positive social and coping skills, we provide them with alternatives that can help turn problem situations into positive outcomes.

TESTIMONIALS FOR THIS SERIES

“I am a special education teacher who teaches a range of students including children with autism. I have just started using this module as a social skills center in my resource room. It has been great being able to refer to the videos in some of the real life situations we encounter throughout the day.”
