Digital Communication Skills for Today's Teenagers by PowerupTeens

Digital Communication Skills for Today's Teenagers

With this course, your teen will become more comfortable communicating with other students and building relationships in today's world.


In today's world, it's impossible to fit in with other teenagers without a solid understanding of digital communication norms. Unfortunately, this area of soft skills is often neglected, even though autistic teenagers almost always struggle with it.

This course is like a manual for digital communication. Access is unlimited for you, your teenager, and anyone else in your family. Use on any device, whenever you want.

Each of the 7 lessons comes with the following:

  • An informative lesson video: one version with symbols, another version without
  • An extensive lesson guide: one version for viewing on desktop, one for smartphones, and another for printing on 8.5x11 paper at home

To learn more about the videos and guides for each lesson, watch the course rubric video below underneath "Contents".
