Social Skills

The social skills training offered at The Titus School follows the Social Thinking® curriculum developed by Michelle Garcia Winner.

Social Thinking® was designed to help people with anxiety disorders, autism spectrum disorders, language impairment and learning disorders develop social competence and build meaningful relationships. Social Thinking® utilizes unique treatment frameworks and strategies to help students develop their social thinking and social skills to meet their personal social goals. These goals often include sharing space effectively with others, learning to work as part of a team, and perspective taking. Social Thinking® utilizes peer-reviewed research to foster the development of:

  • Social self-awareness
  • Perspective taking/theory of mind
  • Self-regulation
  • Executive functioning
  • Social-emotional understanding
  • Social skills
  • Organizational systems
