BIG offers social skills groups to children who may have a difficult time understanding and using social skills in their environment. Groups focus on a particular social skill, such as empathy, conflict resolution, figurative language, making and keeping friends, etc. The focus of each group varies based on an assessment of the age and needs of the students in each of the small groups. With the use of a data-based decision protocol, instructors are able to ensure that learning occurs for each child. Research-based tactics and interventions are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis utilizing techniques including, but not limited to, modeling, role-playing and peer-mediated learning opportunities. Social skills groups may focus on these topics and more. Some topic examples include introductions and conversations, friendship skills and blockers, identifying/expressing emotions, coping with anger and anxiety, peer conflict, sportsmanship, manners, etc.
