The beginning of February social skills class will focus on Public vs. Private. Although the lesson looks simple as it is outlined here many of the topics covered during this section are critical for appropriate social interactions throughout life. As many missteps in this area can and are viewed as rude/eccentric or even through stereotypical prejudice. We typically try to cover this topic multiple times at the end of the year and as the students advance in both physical and social maturity. Please be advised that I always start with a SAFE person disclaimer and encourage each child to seek explore difficult/unsure topics with their families. I try to stay clear of giving advice or ethical education but no matter how well this is done an issue usually will come up. If this does I will call home and discuss what confused the students. Social skills is also the primary time to collect and teach IEP goals as well as assist students with any difficulties they may have in their general education/resource classes and provide related services with as little intrusion on the school day as possible.
