Interesting article on a Department of Defense (DoD) grant given to a company to develop social skills training for children.

The social skills program was “devised at Canisius College’s Institute for Autism Research. It offers a unique social skills intervention that starts with young children, but could improve the quality of life for all autistic people… The Institute, founded by Canisius psychology professors Marcus Thomeer and Christopher Lopata in 2009, just received a nearly $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to study whether their interventions can be made widely available through after-school programs… The team has literally written the manual on how to ‘decode’ dozens of social skills for autistic kids, from negotiating or asking for help to ‘using nice talk’ and ‘accepting no.’ Rather than teaching kids one-on-one in rote behavior training, their goal is to practice social skills over and over in a group setting so they become second nature over time, what they call ‘social knowledge.’”
