Social Skill Training Singapore
What are social skills?
The term “social skills” generally includes sharing ideas, feelings, activities; cooperation, showing interest in others, engaging in eye-contact, establishing common ground, taking turns, having a conversation, and staying on topic.
What is social thinking?
- Social thinking is a methodology that was developed by Michelle Garcia Winner, a speech language pathologist, and it allows us to interpret the deeper meaning behind what others do in the world, and (if the situation calls for it) prompts us with how to respond.
- Using Social Thinking: We all have thoughts about each other when we are sharing a common space with others, and those thoughts impact our feelings and our behaviours. Therefore we need to be both physically and mentally present in a group and use what we observe, hear, and feel to guide our thinking. One would then be more aware of how we should behave when interacting with others.
Social Skills Training
Social skills are those communication, problem-solving, decision making, self-management, and peer relations abilities that allow one to initiate and maintain positive social relationships with others.
Deficits or excesses in social behavior interfere with learning, teaching, and the classroom's orchestration and climate. Social competence is linked to peer acceptance, teacher acceptance, inclusion success and post school success.
