Goals such as utilizing conventional social conversational skills, determining the perspective of others, and collaborating and negotiating with peers are illustrated. Learning supports appropriate for the classroom environment and social skills groups are included in this discussion (e.g., written helper cards, friendship maps, feelings books, and video replay).
