Therapy

Using up-to-date, evidence-based therapy, including the Social Thinking curriculum, we work with children to develop social communication skills. These skills include, but are not limited to: 

  • understanding social rules

  • non-verbal communication 

  • joint attention and eye contact 

  • social problem solving

  • perspective taking

  • conversational turn taking  

Learning these skills builds confidence and helps children make friends and keep friends.  We will help your child apply social skills across settings, people, and situations.  

Why social communication therapy?

Social skills surround us in all of our daily interactions.  These skills change depending on where we are, who we are with, and what the situation is. 

 

Without a compass, the social world can sometimes be impossible to navigate.    

Children who struggle with social skills can experience difficulty with emotional self-regulation, making and keeping friends, and low self-esteem.

It is possible for a child to have advanced spoken language skills and still have social communication challenges.  Social communication is a special part of language that is typically not taught separately for most individuals. 

 

However, children with ASD, ADHD, pragmatic language delay, and other disorders, often need support in learning how to use social thinking to analyze situations and have successful interactions with people.  

We are happy to provide the compass needed to navigate the social world.  What could be more important?
