Social Skills Group

School Children

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) take longer than other children to learn social skills. Some skills that children with ASD struggle with include:

  • conversation skills – for example, choosing what to talk about or what body language to use

  • play skills – for example, taking turns in a game or sharing a toy

  • emotional skills – for example, managing emotions and understanding how others feel

  • problem-solving skills – for example, dealing with conflict or making decisions in a social situation.

Social skills can help your child make friends, learn from others and develop hobbies and interests. These skills can also help with family relationships and give your child a sense of belonging.

Our Social Skills Groups are facilitated by trained practitioners and aim to help children of all ages to develop and improve their social and emotional skills .  

Depending on the age of participants in the groups, each group will usually include:

  • Peer-to-peer interaction

  • Turn-taking

  • Develop pretend play

  • Collaboration and negotiation
