We all know how important social skills are and it is very likely that you will get a lot of referrals for social skills. That is why we are doing a mini series all about social skills this month. We are going to do a deep dive on how you can support your students with their social skills through all three tiers!

We are kicking off this mini series with an introduction to social skills. We are talking about what explicit social skills are, why you should be clear about the titles of your social skills sessions, and the role of the school counselor in helping students with social skills.

Be sure to check out the upcoming episodes where we are looking at how to deliver impactful preventative social skills class lessons, tier two small group social skills lessons, and individual counseling sessions for tier one support.

Are you looking to deliver the best possible content to your students without the stress of planning the lessons? The IMPACT membership is for you! Inside, you’ll have access to monthly curriculum plans for all three tiers, step-by-step implementation guides, bi-weekly coaching calls, and more. Look forward to seeing you there!

Some topics covered in this episode are:

  • The difference between explicit teaching of social skills and the umbrella term “social skills”

  • Why giving accurate titles to our social skills groups are important

  • What role the school counselor plays in helping students with social skills

  • The importance of understanding that sometimes our students don’t know things, like social skills, that come very naturally to others
