Social Skills Group For Teens with Social Language Difficulties
Developing social skills is an essential part of child development. Having the right set of social skills will provide a child the building blocks for social communication and interaction into adulthood. Social skills include social understanding or awareness, appropriate communication both verbally and non-verbally and handling social relationships. These are fundamental blocks allowing a child to experience success and positive experiences in the social world.
Without the right set of social skills, a child may encounter significant problems in social communication and interaction as well as forming social relationships which often leads to low self-esteem, low self-worth, social isolation and bullying. Among the many challenges that children and adolescents with Austism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Social Communication Disorder (SCD) commonly encounter, a significant problem that frequently stands out is in social interaction.
Our Social Skills Group for older children/teens with ASD and SCD are geared towards targeting skills development which are relevant for appropriate social interactions, forming and maintaining friendships that could benefit from the manualized group program.
