Social Skills Development

In by Paige Haberkorn

What is social skills development?

Learning how to best communicate, understand, and get along with people in your family and community. Ideally, social skills development…

  • Teaches you how to understand what people are feeling by paying attention to how they act.
  • Encourages you to make eye contact when speaking with others.
  • Helps you to communicate your feelings and talk about other’s feelings.
  • Helps you to be successful when at work and when you are in the community.

Social skills development means that you will…

  • Know what behaviors are acceptable in public and how to interact with others in different situations.
  • Know what it means to have a healthy, safe relationship with others.
  • Know what is appropriate to do and say in public.
