Superheroes Social Skills

Superheroes Social Skills is an evidence-based program that enhances the social competence of elementary students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), behavioral disorders, or developmental delays. Superheroes was specifically designed to improve the social skills of high-functioning children with ASD, but is also appropriate for any student who needs to learn to interact appropriately with peers and adults.

Superheroes teaches 17 critical social skills:

  • Getting Ready
  • Following Directions
  • Reducing Anxiety
  • Participating
  • Imitating
  • Body Basics
  • Expressing Wants and Needs
  • Joint Attention
  • Turn Taking
  • Responding to Questions and Requests
  • Conversation
  • Recognizing Emotions in Yourself and Others
  • Perspective Taking
  • Reporting a Problem
  • Recognizing and Reporting Bullying
  • Responding to Bullying
  • Problem Solving and Safety
Superheroes is the perfect program for special education teachers, counselors, school psychologists, and speech/language pathologists who work with students who are resistant to adult instruction. In this program, the Superhero characters introduce social skill steps via Fast-Hands Animation. Peers provide video models, and students view social narratives on Digital Comics. Students practice skills steps in role-plays, social games, free time, and generalized settings at home and at school.
