There are a number of things a student must know how to do before they can post the trot… What are the building blocks of social skills? How can we help students develop a solid foundation that will enable them to build mutually fulfilling relationships among their peers and in the work world? This class will assist the EAAT professional in conceptualizing “Social skills” and constructing lesson plans that address the components of pro-social behavior.
