How We Can Help with Social Skills?

Pragmatics or social skills as it’s commonly known is how we use language and communication for social purposes. Some pragmatic skills include using:


  • Appropriate body language

  • Eye contact

  • Turn-taking

  • Facial expressions

  • Tone of voice

  • Staying on topic

  • Understanding humour and sarcasm

Similar to reading and writing, some children or people require the “hidden rules of language” to be taught and explained to them. These are important skills in order to make friends, and keep relationships with people around us.


Social skills can sometimes be a difficult skill to master for people with specific learning difficulties (SPLD) or complex disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We provide specialised treatment plans for people or children who need help improving their social skills for everyday life.
