Social skills are vital to ensure young children’s emotional wellbeing – and are a key issue in the education of children with special needs. This curriculum has been a success with primary school children with mild to moderate disabilities and their peers; they learn the concepts behind appropriate social behaviour, rather than simply a set of specific behaviours to replicate. At times, social skills learning can be ‘a catch-22 situation: Without basic social skills, children are unable to make and maintain friendships; yet it is within these peer relationships that children learn and practice ways of relating to each other.’ (p. 1). Promoting social success provides both a broad overview of the issues involved, as well as the attention to detail to assist primary school teachers to implement a social skills curriculum. Within the 30- to 45-minute lessons, teachers will find student handouts, helpful illustrations, and parent newsletters. This innovative, easy-to-implement curriculum will enhance children’s cognitive abilities to help them become socially successful – both inside and outside the classroom.
