Building social skills


Building social skills is an important part of the continuing development of both children and adults with autism. Engaging in recreational and social activities is a great way engage in social skill building. Autism Delaware provides a number of social and recreational opportunities throughout the year — look at our current calendar of events for more information (click here).
