TD Social Skills is committed to creating tools to help children
and teens develop more positive and fulfilling relationships.
Our products are created using evidence-based
practices of video modeling and visual supports. Our materials empower
students by breaking down inherently unpredictable and complex social
situations into understandable lessons. All of our materials present the
perspective of others, a key ingredient in self-awareness, self-regulation, and relationship development.
Our materials provide engaging, built-in practice and can be easily implemented into
a school, home or therapy setting.
TD Social Skills Products are sold worldwide.
