Social Skills Training
If you are an adult and find yourself struggling with ease and confidence in navigating social situations in personal and workplace relationships, Social Skills Training may be right for you.
Social communication can be impacted by a variety of disorders, such as anxiety, ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), Brain Injury, and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder); or by a change in environment or audience (e.g. location, workplace, change in role or demands, or social circle). Like any skill, social communication can be improved.
Together, we will create a profile of your strengths and challenges, reduce barriers, develop improved social thinking and understanding, and implement a step-by-step plan to increase social communication confidence and success.
