6. Social Skills Intervention Group

Component Purpose

Social Skills Intervention Group (SSIG)is a standard protocol Tier 2 intervention intended to assist students in acquiring and building fluency in appropriate behaviors. This intervention is most appropriate for students who have acquisition deficits; the appropriate social skills are missing from their repertoire.  This component will help teams develop systems and practices required to successfully implement the SSIG intervention with students. The resources on this page are intended to supplement MO SW-PBS regional Tier 2 training.
