This curriculum breaks down the pragmatic and social elements that your child will face in school into easy to work on chunks that can be practiced with kids and adults. Each session will provide feedback on how to work on those skills at home with easy to follow games. It will target skills like initiating a conversation, turn-taking, requesting, and answering and asking questions in a fun-filled environment.
