Social Communication Pathway
There are multiple ways in which a young person can experience social communication difficulties. Some can be quite obvious but others can be more subtle and harder to spot. For some young people, they may struggle to make and maintain friendships, which is impacting on their mental health and confidence.
Examples of social communication difficulties could be not understanding the need to take turns, being unable to read others body language or speaking over others. This course will help to identify the specific areas the young person is struggling with and explicitly support them to understand what they can do to improve how they socialise with peers.
