Directory Description:
The goal of Main Line Social Learning is to teach adolescents and adults the skills needed to achieve social success as they transition from school settings to adult environments. Our collaborative approach helps those with social learning challenges learn the skills and build the confidence to successfully navigate the social world. Even casual conversations are complex, quick, unpredictable, and dynamic. It is not uncommon for individuals to thrive in academics and flourish in innovation, but struggle to understand how small talk is so small- when it can feel so big.

Main Line Social Learning serves bright teenagers and adults who feel isolated, out of sync, and overwhelmed with social demands. Direct skill instruction using Michelle Garcia Winner's Social Thinking Curriculum and individualized sessions are developed in conjunction with clients and their families in order to develop the skills needed and to generalize these skills into community settings. Prosocial behavior is a foundation for independence and autonomy in school, colleges, employment settings, family gatherings, friendships, and social relationships. We believe it is never too late to learn these skills.
