Social Skills 101

NCPS is aware that each passing year for students means more expectations to the social challenges and the ever-changing rules of social “expectations”. Students who have not mastered the social skills expected of them in earlier years generally will continue to struggle through their middle school years and high school years.

Therefore NCPS provides social skills groups to help students learn to be flexible so they can adapt to the changes they will encounter as they continue to transition into adulthood. Students will learn cooperation and compromising skills, conversation skills, understanding reciprocal friendships while enhancing self-worth and confidence by participating in fun activities.

NCPS also realizes that unstructured times can be difficult for students who lack social skills, therefore we have developed Breakfast Club and Lunch Bunch to help students develop confidence during naturally occuring social situations.
