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.

At Milestones, our classes are designed to teach teens and young adults the building blocks of becoming an independent adult, including social skills, friendship, boundaries, safety, dating, sexuality, and so much more.

But we have more than just classes! Special events, including movie nights, dances and cafe nights, give students a chance to practice their social skills and build bonds with others in the programs and in the community.
