Topics covered include:

  • Developing an Action Plan
  • Identifying Core Skills
  • Developing a Social Skills Profile
  • Generating Useful Strategies
  • Exploring Ways to Observe Behaviour & Identify Alternative Behaviour
  • Understanding Behaviour within the Context of Social Skills

A model of Skill Learning will be presented. This is a 2-part course. You must take Part One to understand Part Two.
