About Next Level Social Skills

What if a social skills program could be both effective in developing skills and a positive experience that children want to go to and will remember for the rest of their lives? 

Next Level Social Skills is a research-based social skills program for children aged between 8 to 15 years old that uses their interest in gaming to meaningfully develop collaborative social skills.

Combining video modelling and feedback with collaborative play, this new digital games-based intervention is the first of its kind in the world. Building from the work of Matthew Harrison’s PhD research this structured program is designed specifically to support children with social-emotional challenges, including individuals with autism, intellectual disabilities and ADHD.
