*Social skills are the skills we use every day to interact and communicate with others. They include verbal and non-verbal communication, such as speech, gesture, facial expression and body language. A person has strong social skills if they have the knowledge of behaviours in social situations and understand both written and implied rules when communicating with others.
OT Social Skills Development can assist people with a diagnosis of Intellectual Impairment (II), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Pervasive Developmental Disorder (Not Otherwise Specified) and Asperger’s that may have identified difficulties with social skills.
