Social Skills

Social skills support assists students with building relationships with peers, roommates, faculty, and administration. Support is given in: verbal and non-verbal communication, initiating and maintaining conversations, senses of humor, emotional control, theory of mind, social reciprocity, response inhibition, idioms and figurative language, inferences, and understanding levels of friendship. This assistance might be given in weekly meetings. Social skills support may also include planned events and social opportunities with other individuals or groups in order to encourage students to become involved on campus.
