The Social Competency Model (SoCoMo) which is being applied in the NID departments since 2000 is a unique way for people’s potential to be recognised, to change unwanted behaviour into desired behaviour and for social skills to be acquired. SoCoMo’s origins are rooted in the Netherlands, but NID has since adapted it for the South African context and made it Deaf accessible. NID was also able to get our SoCoMo program accredited by the University of Stellenbosch this year which means that more organisations can now benefit from this training. CPD accreditation of 30 points has been approved for attendance and completion by professionals such as social workers.
