Circles Level 2

Circles Level 2

Many teachers currently using Circles Social Boundaries: Intimacy & Relationships have requested a second step follow-up program that would illustrate the application of the Circles™ Rules of Social Intimacy in more complex social settings. This is it. Level 2 is a perfect second step program for students with moderate to mild cognitive challenges and can be used as a stand-alone introduction for higher functioning students. Because it uses a reality-show format, Circles Level 2 is ideal for illustrating more subtle applications of the Circles Rules of Social Distance. All segments of this program use the Circle Paradigm, but with greater attention to its more subtle application, within the context of establishing relationships, developing discretion and recognizing change.
