Social Skills for Autism
Boosting your child’s confidence
What are Social Skills?
Social skills help us talk and connect with others. They involve speaking, body language, and more.
Important social skills include:
These skills let us interact with family, friends, and others. Yet, some people with autism struggle to understand social signs. At Tandem, we use contemporary ABA therapy to help your child grow skills and feel confident in social situations.
Our Social Skills Programs
We use proven methods to help children grasp social interactions.
Our skilled board certified behavior analysts (BCBAs) and behavior technicians (BTs) simplify specific skills and goals, like taking turns or understanding tone of voice. Training is clear and broken down into easy steps. We set achievable goals and build on them as your child succeeds. Each step boosts their self-esteem.
Every treatment plan is unique, just like our programs. Social skills training varies depending on your child’s age and needs.
Many programs teach children to:
We use games and role playing to teach children how to share toys, join play, and take turns. These activities help them observe and practice everyday social situations.
Social Situations Made Simple
Making friends is important for your child’s growth. Our Social Skills Programs teach skills to increase self-confidence.
In small groups, your child learns to follow group instructions.
Our caring team of experts helps your child develop their skills. We start by evaluating them and setting goals for success. Then, we work on important skills they can practice.
Children on the autism spectrum sometimes need help with different social situations. We’re here to make it easier. Over time, your child will learn the appropriate skills for various social situations.
Social Skills Programs Often Include:
Discussion, modeling, role play, and positive reinforcement
Creative projects and enjoyable indoor and outdoor activities
The social skills your child gains with ABA can teach them the usual behaviors needed for success in school and life. Our methods are scientific and proven, helping thousands of families overcome autism-related challenges.
