Social Skills

Social skills are extremely important in child development, with social relationships often vital to our child’s sense of well-being and happiness. Many children do not develop strong social skills and this can create much friction and anxiety, especially in the school environment. We usually assess children first via questionnaire (parent and teacher), to determine what areas of social impact there are in different settings as well as the level of severity. If a treatment plan is unclear based upon the ratings, an observational assessment may also be helpful.
