Simply Social Kids provides support to kids who are challenged by social interactions. All kids will struggle socially at some point during their childhood; however others experience more frequent and consistent social awkwardness. Some children, particularly those with certain types of special needs, have a very difficult time making friends, developing solid friendships, and keeping friends. Simply Social Kids provides coaching to kids of all abilities to improve their social skills. For some children, a little fine-tuning is all that is needed, and for others, a long term, consistent approach with role playing and practice is necessary.

"Eye contact is overrated."

It really is.

When I am in school meetings for autistic kids, educators are often surprised if their parents do not want to have eye contact included as part of their educational goals.

Many autistic people are overwhelmed when we are required to process too much information at once. For many of us, it is hard to process information coming through our eyes at the same time we are processing information coming through our ears.

If I am really, really listening to you, I probably am not looking at your face. It takes too much work to do both at the same time.

I understand as someone who spent years in front of the classroom as a teacher that it feels better to have students look at me. It is easier to gauge their level of attention.

But educational goals should be about the needs of students, not the feelings of teachers.

Dogs are trained to look people in the face because it makes us feel good. People should learn to interact with the world in ways that allow us to learn and grow. — with Luana Aulalo and Zoey Roberts.
