Today’s #AutChat is about learning social skills. For the purpose of this chat, “social skills” means skills that help you interact with other people more effectively.

Learning social skills is a process. We get better at social skills, and at learning them, all our lives. Neurotypical people learn social skills too, of course!

But we sometimes need different skills, and may need to learn them in different ways. #AutChat
