Autism Bedfordshire - Skills 4 Success programme Communication and Social Skills

Communication And Social Skills Course

Our Skills4Success programme aims to provide young people aged 16 -19 with lower level needs the opportunity to learn and develop their skills alongside accessing social opportunities within the community

We aim to empower the learners, reduce anxieties, build confidence and independence and develop skills which will be transferable as they approach adulthood

Our skills courses offer an alternative, smaller and quieter environment for learning and can be adapted to suit the needs of the individual. Most of our skills courses will run for approximately 6 weeks and follow a planned scheme of work.

Communication and Social Skills Course

Being able to communicate effectively is perhaps the most important of all life skills. It is what enables us to pass information to other people and to understand what is said to us.

This is an opportunity for young people to develop their communication and social skills with their peers in a fun and safe environment.

Topics Covered:

  • Peer pressure and jealousy
  • Taking turns
  • Social situations
  • Friendships
  • Coping with pressure
  • Arguments and anger
  • Trust and feelings
  • Understanding the different ways to start conversations
