Understanding the social aspects of life is as important to a child's growth as academics. Being adept socially is essential for emotional well-being, independence, confidence, empathy and communication. When a child can effectively use language to converse, exhibits empathy towards others, and can properly interpret and respond to social situations, he is likely to develop friendships with his peers and fit into the social hierarchy at school and in the community.
Social skill deficits can be present in children of any age. Relating to peers is particularly difficult for those who have special needs, but can also be challenging for children who are shy as well as those who are gifted. Whether your child is on the autism spectrum, has social communication disorder or just needs help making and maintaining friendships, we are here to help. We’ll design a program that will improve your child's ability to communicate naturally within his social environment.
