Community Success Software presents step-by-step illustrated instruction in community activities and the social skills needed for each activity. Realistic illustrations, instructive auditory cues and easy use gives students the opportunity to rehearse skills and understand activities before they go out. The Social Skills sections picture both "good" and "not so good" behaviours.
DetailsCommunity Success Software helps students with developmental disabilities, including autism, prepare for community outings and eventual independence. But learning these skills is a complex process. First, you need to master a myriad of social interactions: What do you say to a store clerk? Who gets off an elevator first? It also requires execution of step-by-step sequences: find crosswalk, push “walk,” wait for “walk” sign, stay in crosswalk. Plus it’s helpful to have a working knowledge of how businesses function: Can a restaurant call you a cab? How much do I tip the driver?
The all-new Community Success Software covers these skills and more in an easy-to-navigate, engaging program. It focuses on 24 important activities, like Riding the Bus, Grocery Shopping, and Movie Theater. Information is made accessible through video modeling, photo-based directions, talking stories, and vivid illustrations of social behaviors.
The 45 activities are organized by category: Shopping, transportation, eating out, important places and appointments. Activities range from basic (using restrooms) to complex (grocery shopping).
Create an activity sequence to reflect an actual outing, or have students "explore" on their own.
Print colourful illustrations of social skills and instructional steps for classroom use or as community cues.
Videos take place in actual locations. Photos illustrate activities step by step. The short stories feature professional narration with highlighted text and emphasize safety, activity tips, and relevant vocabulary. Keep track of student scores, assign specific activities, and print out Step, Social Skill, and Story pages from PDFs.
