Social skills form an important part of everyone’s life. Poor or lacking social skills have negative repercussions in personal interactions. Conversing with others, interacting with peers at a job site, and forging personal bonds all rely on social skills. Yet many students with disabilities lack even the most basic social skills. Join Chartlytics and our upcoming guest Kendra Peacock for “pinpointing social skills.” Kendra is a national expert on Precision Teaching and pinpointing. As the director of Outreach at the Vista School, she has overseen a staff whose job has been to go into public schools, pinpoint social skills, and help students interact with classmates, teachers, and parents in positive manner.
