Other considerations for social skills


Some students may not understand social norms about personal space without clear instruction. Consider teaching all students about boundaries and be specific. For example, talk about how close to stand next to others and whether (and where) it is ok to touch someone.

Other co-occuring conditions

Students with social challenges may also be on the autism spectrum, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder, or be blind or low vision, or deaf or hard of hearing.
