What are Good Social Skills?

The ability to effectively adapt our social behavior around others according to the situation, what we know about the people in that situation and what our own needs are. (Michelle Garcia Winner & Pamela Crooke, Social Thinking at Work)

What are Life Skills?

Life skills are problem solving behaviors used appropriately and responsibly in the management of personal affairs. They are a set of human skills acquired via teaching or direct experience that are used to handle problems and questions commonly encountered in daily human life. The subject varies greatly depending on societal norms and community expectations. (Wikipedia)

Below is a list of popular Social Skills and Life Skills apps for the iPad:

  1. Where are the Anroid Apps? I don’t have the $500-$700 for an Ipad, but may get an android based tablet. Please give us links to Android apps too!

  2. Hi Doug,

    I noticed that you have reviewed one of Michelle Garcia Winners books. I work with Social Thinking and wanted to know if you would like to review our titles on-going? We have complimentary titles sent to you for your reviews. Let me know, would love to have you on board.

    Thanks for all you do! Hope to hear from you soon.
