SocialEyes

Social Eyes

SocialEyes is a new and innovative approach to facilitating social skills and social understanding with people on the autism spectrum. Launched by The National Autistic Society in 2010, this learning resource has been developed with people with autism and Asperger syndrome, along with leading professionals in the field. All SocialEyes resources have been extensively piloted and re-piloted with ongoing development and research since 2005.

SocialEyes does not ask people on the autism spectrum to change 'inappropriate' social behaviour, or to acquire social skills by copying the 'typical' behaviour of others. Instead, it gives people the option of learning social interaction skills or alternative social strategies. SocialEyes focuses on eight social skills that people on the autism spectrum can have difficulty with, including starting a conversation, eye contact and personal space.

These session take place on a Wednesday evening from 6.00pm to 7.30pm. To make a referral to this service please contact Nicola Thompson, Section Head for Children and Young People, on 01429 867016 or email nicola@familiesfirstne.co.uk
