Help Your Child Build Relationships that Last
Social communication is crucial to a child’s relationship with family, friends, and peers. A child with problems in social pragmatics may have a hard time staying connected with friends or making new ones.
Problems with social communication may affect their social well-being from the classroom to the workplace when they grow up. Speech and language therapy focused at social communication and pragmatics will help them get started on creating bonds and relationships in life.
What is Social (Pragmatics) Communication Disorder?
Social pragmatic communication disorder, or SPCD affects both verbal and nonverbal challenges in social situations and environments. Children with SPCD may struggle with fundamental conversational skills including:
difficulty with understanding social and unspoken context
speaking out of turn or not knowing when to talk appropriately in a group
struggling to pick up non-verbal language or cues
not catching and getting non-literal language forms (idioms, expressions, or metaphors)
It may also be associated with other disorders such as autism and ADHD. Issues with social pragmatics is best addressed early, and you can get started as early as today by talking to our speech-language pathologists.
