Social Communication

Social communication is a term often referred to as the child's ability to use language to interact in a social context. The skill requires the child to attend to a wide variety of stimuli including the context of the enviornment, non-verbal communication of the communicative partner and the words used to convey various functions of communication.  Many children with Autism, as well as other children with a wide variety of other types of communication disorders, often have difficulty with social communication.  The therapists at Let's Talk have specific training in observing and understanding specifically where the social communication skills are breaking down in order to develop appropriate treatment for each individual child.
