Social Communication Difficulties

Social communication refers to the ability to use language to relate to others in various social situations. Social communication difficulties can present themselves in many different ways but can have a large impact on children’s functioning in their everyday world.

Express Yourself Speech can help your children with their social communication skills in many different ways. Some of these areas include:

  • Helping your child to read and interpret nonverbal communication cues, e.g., body language, tone of voice and facial expression
  • Making implicit rules for social situations more explicit
  • Perspective-taking
  • Helping your child to understand how their behaviour impacts others thoughts and feelings
  • Making friends and maintaining solid and positive peer relationships
  • Reciprocal conversations
  • Joining a group
  • Problem solving
  • Conflict resolution
