Building Social Skills

Understanding and using correct social language is imperative for good communication. The Social Skill Builder software series focuses on improving a child's understanding of social language. Often social language is overlooked and expected to be understood without any instruction. Social Skill Builder programs use real life videos of social situations in order to teach a child about the "rules" of social communication. These programs target several topics including understanding and identification of:

  • Social emotions
  • Appropriate social touch and body space
  • Appropriate volumes for speech in different situations
  • Complex cues in the social environment
  • Appropriate language to use in different social settings
  • Peer relationships
  • Appropriate Classroom Behavior
  • Rituals of Recess
  • Lunchtime Interaction

The Social Skill Builder series is designed to facilitate learning with opportunities to pause and discuss information, to replay scenarios for greater recall and understanding, and several expansion exercises to carry over skills learned into everyday life.

Preschool Playtime CDs 1 & 2 teach the young child basic manners and behaviors such as greetings, interrupting, listening, waiting and apologizing through real-life social situations like a day at the park, in preschool or going to a play date. Unlike passive videos, this software allows the user to visually see the social interactions re-enacted by children and then choose what should be said or done next. In this fun, familiar, but safe environment, users can become increasingly aware of social expectations and more successfully interact with their peers.

This program includes 5 complexity levels and numerous videos to target a broad range of abilities. All levels include a fun and motivating social game of Duck, Duck Goose, Ring Around the Rosie, and Hide and Seek which is incorporated as the user plays the computer program. This program targets individuals with a cognitive age of 3-7 years and includes an easy-to-use lesson plan to customize the video sequences shown for each student.

All Social Skill Builder programs, including Preschool Playtime, automatically track each student's responses and provide a printout of their daily and long-term results, making social skills more objective.
