Narrative

At Whole Children, we teach social skills in every class. We follow a learn-by-doing approach to teach the everyday social skills many of our kids struggle with. We’ve found that modeling and encouraging positive social interactions within the context of our interest-based classes is one of the best ways to build skills, develop confidence, and foster lasting friendships. In our discussion classes, like Growing Up and Boundaries & Relationships, we teach important and sometimes neglected social skills. Look for the following Core Competencies in all our class descriptions: Communication, Perspective Taking, Teamwork, Community Building, Boundaries & Relationships, Social Awareness, Confidence, Self-Advocacy, Self-Regulation, Critical Thinking, and Creative Thinking.
