What are Social / pragmatic skill deficits?
The study of the rules that govern and describe how language is used during different situations, in light of its context and environment.
Each year of your child's education brings with it a host of new behavior challenges and opportunities to excel socially and academically. The development of communication skills begins in infancy, before the emergence of the first word. Any speech or language problem is likely to have a significant effect on the child's social and academic skills and behavior. The earlier a child's speech and language problems are identified and treated, the less likely it is that problems will persist or get worse. Early speech and language intervention can help children be more successful with reading, writing, schoolwork, and interpersonal relationships.
