Social Skills

Some older children have typical language skills but have a hard time using those skills to interact with other children in a social way. Speech therapy can help these children learn to interact with their peers in a more typical way to help foster relationships and improve interactions. Social skills deficits might look like: 

  • obsessed/stuck on one or a few specific topics

  • difficulty reading social cues 

  • sharing information that is not appropriate

  • difficulty understanding other people's emotions

  • has a hard time making friends

  • does not understand how to handle certain social situations

  • assumes people know what they are talking about and does not provide context

  • talks in circles

  • does not respond appropriately to comments made to them
