Getting Ready for Group is a program aimed at providing learners with the skills they need to thrive in a group environment. The goals of this group will include:
- Following Individual, Group and Multi-step Instructions
- Following Group Rules
- Asking for Help
- Tolerating a Change in Schedule and Waiting
- Remaining with the Group
- Earning and Cashing in Tokens for a Prize
- Asking for a Break and Appropriately Using a Break Space
Concepts will be initially introduced in a smaller group setting and then generalized to a larger group as skills are acquired.
