Working in special education as well as teaching ESL has given me an appreciation for how we interact with others. It is important to understand that our behavior is influenced by our mental, emotional, physical and cultural selves. This understanding helps us to interact better.

No Person Is an Island: a Guide to Social Interactions

800px-DancingMidCityBayouBoogaloo2006EditorB

No person is an island; no one can survive without others. But, just what is social interaction? Within this guide, readers will find various answers to this question. Literally, social interaction is how a person or group of people connects to each other. The connection can be momentary or last a lifetime, because each time we associate with another, we are participating in social interaction. Connecting to others happens in work, our families, and during activities such as shopping, playing, driving and relaxing. Therefore, whether you are integrating a new employee with Autism into your department, participating in an online role-playing game or setting up a Wii for gym class, social interactions occur.
