SOCIAL SKILLS- the currency of a successful life
People with ASD have impairments in three areas, namely:- Social, Communication, Imagination and repetitive behaviours. A well respected author and motivational speaker, Stephen Covey, points out the importance of learning to be interdependent- how co-operating with others brings about better effects than being completely self sufficient and isolated from others. For this reason ASK believes that working on any social impairments is very important in ensuring a person's success in life. ?ASK draws from concepts and techniques from a number of therapies that focus on social interactions. The resulting approaches offered by ?ASK is uniquely different, but still contains the necessary elements that make the component social therapies that it draws from, so successful.
