Dungeons Dragons is hands down one of the best ways to learn social skills.
Students will learn to cooperate, problem solve, listen and work as a team.
The goal of the group is to introduce D&D to Tier 1 ASD/ADHD students wanting to learn or those looking for a group to join. We will be teaching social skills while learning to play the game:
- Communication skills
- Working as a team & problem Solving
- Turn taking and Listening skills (not interrupting)
- Reading social cues - ASD players often miss out on the tells that move the story forward. The social cues learned in game transfer to out if game life experiences
Saturdays: We will be exploring the Lost mines of Phandelver mixed with elements from the Dragon of Icepire peak.
Wednesdays: Lost mines of Phandelver or a new campaign Waterdeep: Dragon Heist or Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus
Who is D&D best suited for and what skills do I come to the table with:
- Tier 1 ASD/ADHD, youth 12 - Adult, anyone w/ a sense of adventure and dash of creativity,
