Social Improv™ for Teens and Young Adults

03 April 2018

What is Social Improv™?

Understanding and predicting other people's cues can be a constant challenge, never mind figuring out your own. At ImprovAbility!, we work to give teens and young adults who struggle socially the tools to help with interpersonal skills. They'll learn how to read and interpret social messages as situations and people around them change.
