Social Skills Training

Social skills are critical to successful functioning in life. These skills give us the ability to know what to say, how to make good choices, and how to behave in diverse situations. The extent to which children and adolescents possess good social skills can influence their academic performance, behavior, social and family relationships, and involvement in extracurricular activities.

KISS provides parents and individuals with disabilities a guide in facilitating interaction and communication with others. We will provide social skills training in the home and in the community as needed in both verbal and nonverbal ways. The ability to socialize appropriate will help with communication, behavior, and adaptive skills that KISS is trained in developing and supporting.

We have monthly social skills groups that facilitate the social learning in the community with the use of typical peers for each individual with disabilities. Our sites have included: nail salons, bowling, restaurants, pottery painting, the park, and more.
