Impact
SiLAS provided our students an innovative way to learn social skills which are challenging for our students to acquire. It provided our students a way to blend technology with real life practice of skills such as facing the speaker during a conversation, increasing conversational exchanges, and lengthen the time students were able to engage in cooperative play.

SiLAS is the most effective, versatile tool in my speech/language therapy toolbox. I have implemented the program with success during individual and group therapy sessions with children of all ages and skill levels. The children are motivated to learn new skills using SiLAS, which, in turn, has resulted in progress that is noted by both families and professionals alike.

Comparing SiLAS with a paper-and-pencil social skills class, I found that SiLAS resulted in far greater improvement in social skills. Not only did SiLAS parents observe improved social skills in their children, but were also far more satisfied with the skills their children learned.
