Social Skills

Some children struggle to understand social communication skills. These skills include the ways in which we use and interpreter spoken language and nonverbal communication (body language and facial expression). Social communication involves the way in which a child is able to use greetings, make requests, change their language based off of the listener, and follow rules of conversation. If your child frequently responds off topic during question answering, has a hard time interpreting the meaning of body language and facial expressions, or has difficulty making/keeping friends then the activities listed on this page will help him/her continue to understand social skills.
