The Social Express™ targets core deficit areas that stand in the way of school, social, and life success for children and young adults with social learning challenges.
Social Learning is a Challenge
Children with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and other social learning challenges do not learn the skills needed to be effective adults in the same way that their neurotypical peers do. Individuals with social learning challenges require direct instruction, with each facet of every skill broken down into small pieces.
The Social Express addresses these areas of need by providing a highly interactive and visual presentation and utilizing an additional component which allows for the generalization of skills outside of the teaching environment.
Who Has These Challenges?
Many people with social learning challenges have been diagnosed with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, non-verbal learning disability, pragmatic language disorder, ADHD, or “learning disabled.” However, there are many people without any diagnosis that have social learning challenges.
