Targeted Skills and Behavioral Domains
TeachTown Social Skills Elementary Program targets 5 key behavioral domains
The social skills featured in TeachTown Social Skills are critical to students’ well being. These skills help optimize classroom learning and school safety for students with special needs and diagnosed with ASD. TeachTown Social Skills can help these students focus on building positive peer relationships. At a time when the issue of bullying has become such an important part of the conversation, this program can help students cope with bullies and lessen the likelihood that they will become bullies themselves. Integrated throughout each volume of TeachTown Social Skills are themes that help students build confidence, make good decisions, and become successful students — all of which contribute to creating a safe and secure school environment.
