From the Social Skill Builder Website: "Social Skill Builder, founded by speech language pathologists, has developed interactive CD-ROM computer programs that target understanding and use of every day social skills in children with a variety of disorders and delays.... Many children with developmental disabilities, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down's Syndrome, hearing impairment, and others have problems learning the complex understanding of social interaction. Parents, educators, and therapists are challenged to teach these children the "unspoken" rules of social behavior. Usually children pick up these skills through experience and learn from interactions. Children with disabilities sometimes lack the understanding to learn from their life experiences and have more difficulty with social skills. In order for these special children to learn critical life skills, essential to living, they have to be taught."
