Social Thinking classes are part of Radcliffe’s Integrated Studies program. These classes focus on teaching our students about their role as communicators in their interactions with others.
In class, students practice how to plan and execute appropriate language, tone, and behaviors in a variety of group settings. The students think about their friendships, relationships with peers and adults, communication styles, and ability to manage their academic life, while becoming better self-advocates.
These classes also allow for individualized objectives based upon the students’ needs. These might include social pragmatic skills such as using appropriate eye contact, turn taking, impulse control strategies, and effective vocabulary usage.
