Online Therapy for Social Skills & Pragmatic Language in Children

Difficulty with pragmatic language can exist independently, in combination with other language problems, or as part of another diagnosis such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD).


What are social skills?

Social skills (or pragmatic language) are the skills we use to interact and communicate with others. Social skills include spoken language and nonverbal communication such as gestures and facial expressions. It involves knowing how to behave in social situations and understand both written and implied rules when communicating with others. Sometimes a child has trouble understanding how to use pragmatic language or social skills properly. The specific cause of a pragmatic language disorder is unknown.


How can I tell if my child has a problem with social skills or pragmatic language?

If a child has difficulties with social skills, they might exhibit the following symptoms:

→ Have trouble maintaining eye contact

→ Have a problem taking turns during a conversation

→ Struggling to stay on topic during conversation

→ Find it challenging to communicate effectively with strangers

→ Have difficulty understanding social situations

→ Not understanding jokes and figurative language 

→ Talk about a favorite topic without noticing that the listener isn’t interested

→ Have a hard time predicting or understanding others’ actions

→ Use an unusual monotone or sing-song tone of voice

If you notice any of these early signs, contact your child’s pediatrician and ask to make an appointment to assess for social communication disorder/pragmatic language disorders.


If your child has difficulties with social skills and their pediatrician has examined them, speech therapy is often recommended to treat the problem. The speech-language pathologist can be a great coach to help the child improve pragmatic language skills and for the parent to facilitate pragmatic language across environments. 


Our assessment involves questionnaires and interviews with the parents and learning more about the child’s storytelling, problem-solving, pragmatic language, social-emotional development, and executive functions. The treatment program will be based on your child’s needs and goals.


Online Evaluations & Treatment From the Comfort of Your Home

THOROUGH ASSESSMENT

After your free introductory call, your speech therapy begins with a comprehensive assessment by a skilled speech-language pathologist (SLP) who is highly trained to identify speech and communication issues in young children.

CUSTOM GOALS & PLAN

At Exceptional Teletherapy, we believe that goals should be centered around you and created in collaboration with family. An individualized treatment plan for addressing your child’s specific issues will be created.

EFFECTIVE TREATMENT

Since each child is unique and will respond differently to therapy methods, your therapist will create a treatment program tailor-made for your child’s needs and adapt their therapy as needed.


We’ll take the time to properly diagnose your child’s communication issues.

We have a variety of tools that we can use to identify your child’s specific areas of need. Speech-language evaluations may consist of reviewing educational and medical history, clinical observation, and interviews with caregivers. With a proper diagnosis, your child can receive targeted speech therapy to reduce or eliminate communication issues.

We care about helping children make measurable improvements.

Treatment goals will be set by your speech-language pathologist to create meaningful outcomes that achieve real-life improvement. Several of our therapists have teaching certificates. We understand the best, most engaging ways to work with children of all ages.

If giving more stars were possible, I would give many more. I have two year old twins and both have been going to this place since last year and I can't describe the joy it gives me to see how far they have come. one of my babies had anxiety when sharing with unknown people and because of this, we could not go to restaurants or places with a lot of people around… and other things. In a short period of them being there, I can say that they are a totally different babies, more sociable, kind and both of them know so many new things, communicating skills and more. I want to thank all of the therapists who have been there with them, but specifically to Monica, Nicole, Stephanie, Ana and Jackie, that have been with them since day one. They are the bests therapists ever! Not only how they teach them, but because they show love and patience to them.

I have been to two other speech therapists for my son, and was dissapointed by their lack of focus and detail. Exceptional Speech Therapy was recommended by a friend, and I could not be happier. In 3 short motnhs, my child has made improvements that I was unsure would ever take place. I am very thankful for the care and concern their entire team shows, and I sleep better knowing that my son is in a better place.
