Social Skills

APT therapist's often blends Michelle Garcia Winner's Social Thinking Curriculum into their treatment sessions or in specific social skills groups.  For many individuals, the process of communicating and interacting with other individuals is anything but natural.  While these challenges are commonly experienced by individuals with autism spectrum disorders (high-functioning), social communication disorder, Asperger's, ADHD, nonverbal learning disability (NLD) and similar diagnoses, children and adults experiencing social learning difficulties often have received no diagnosis.  During social skills training, therapists offer a range of strategies that address individual strengths and weaknesses in processing social information.
