Adult Social-Relational Skills Training
Simply Social is working with Michigan Rehabilitation Services (MRS) to provide teens and adults eligible for MRS services with evidence based social skills training. This training aids in improving social, interpersonal, and communication skills (which employers often refer to as "soft skills"), and will help prepare the individual for further independence and employment. There is a volume of research stressing the need for basic social skills in workplace settings. Some of these skills include interacting with co-workers, accepting constructive feedback, requesting and providing assistance, respecting privacy of others, complaining, and interrupting meetings. Employers expect employees with and without disabilities to have the needed social skills when they start a job so supervisors can work on job specific skills (Agran, Hughes, Thoma, & Scott, 2016).
