Let’s start flapping those social butterfly wings together!


Below is a breakdown of some of the lifelong skills we are teaching in our Let’s Get Social groups. The groups are inspired by the Social Thinking methodology created by Michelle Garcia Winner. If you haven't heard of her work- dive in! It's a wealth of wisdom.
