S.O.S. : Social skills in Our Schools Transition program: Preparing adolescents & adults with social skills challenges for adul
by Michelle Dunn and Sarah Espanol and Elizabeth Goldstein




Overview -
The SOS: Social skills in Our Schools Transition Program is a four-year comprehensive curriculum, that prepares adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorder and other social interaction challenges (e.g., communication disorders, attention deficit disorder, social anxiety) for a productive adult life. The focus of the program is developing effective social behavior and communication at work and play (with family, friends, and in romantic relationships), on self-regulation/coping, planning and organization, self-advocacy, insight, and independent living skills. The goal to remove obstacles to success is achieved through didactic instruction and cognitive behavioral therapeutic activities in a skills group, as well as through peer mentoring and parent support. Planned practice and real-life experiences link individual skills together and promote generalization. Written and tested in collaboration with New York City Public School staff, this program is practical and innovative. It is effectively delivered in high schools and colleges, in clinics and other therapeutic settings as well.
