We Help Kids Build Social Skills

Social skills are key for shaping relationships and connecting with others. We know that a variety of interactions contribute to the way we engage with others. Those could include anything from facial expressions to verbal and nonverbal communication. We focus on developing the kinds of abilities that help children build relationships.

At WEAP, we help children build social skills, including:

  • Interactive play
  • Pretend play
  • Initiating conversation
  • Taking turns
  • Following directions
  • Respecting boundaries
  • Identifying emotions
  • Showing empathy

Social skills are at the heart of connecting with family, friends, and the community.
We understand that children on the autism spectrum sometimes need extra help. They may have a hard time understanding social cues, having meaningful conversations, and forming relationships. At WEAP, we use compassionate, contemporary ABA therapy to help kids build skills and confidence.
