People Who Struggle with Social and Emotional Skills

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

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. The curriculum works on eight target skills.

● Self-management
● Conflict Resolution
● Coping Strategies
● Group Participation
● Attentive Listening
● Relationship Management
● Non-verbal Communication
● Conversations
