Social Skills Training

Students at Imagine Academy participate in social skills training with peers in dyads, triads, and small group environments. We utilize a variety of techniques and curriculums to facilitate age-appropriate peer interactions between students while playing with toys, games, during mealtime, cooking, morning meeting and extracurricular activities. For example, therapists and staff trained in Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking curriculum run weekly social thinking groups with students in various classrooms. Also, students participate in weekly AAC groups practicing various vocabulary and communication functions in a motivating environment. Our goal is for to students to feel successful, motivated, and engaged during interactions with their classmates and other peers.
