Our ability to understand nonverbal communication is essential for successful social interactions. If we don't know what is being communicated, how can we respond appropriately?
The main emphasis throughout the curriculum is that it is activity based. Like learning a new language, what is needed is a lot of practice and repetition. A wide variety of engaging activities are used to teach and reinforce skills, including listening practice, games, movie clips, role-plays, and apps. This curriculum has two goals. The first goal is that students become better communicators, both at expressing themselves as well as understanding others. The second is that they have fun and enjoy the process of learning these new skills.Learn More

When parenting, teaching and working with children who have social, emotional, and/or sensory challenges, we often put the emphasis on learning new skills, but stress management skills are often not addressed.
