Understanding the social aspects of life is as important to the growth of a child as academics. Being socially adept is essential for emotional well-being, independence, confidence, empathy, and communication. When a child can effectively use language to converse, exhibit empathy towards others, and properly interpret and respond to social situations, he or she is more likely to develop friendships with peers and fit into the social hierarchy of his or her school and community.
Social skill deficits can be present in children of any age. Relating to peers is particularly difficult for those with special needs, but can also be challenging for shy and gifted children. Whether your child is on the autism spectrum, has social communication disorder, or just needs help making and maintaining friendships, By Design Social Skills will provide you with the best possible resources to aid in the social development of your child. We will design a program to improve your child's natural communication abilities and allow him or her to better understand the social environment. We look forward to building a brighter future for your child by supplying the social tools necessary for successful development.
