Social communication is the language that we use in social situations. Social communication work is similar to the services we offer for social skills, however the difference is that social communication is specifically associated with a new DSM - 5 diagnosis: Social Communication Disorder. At Well Said: Toronto Speech Therapy we work with adults diagnosed with Social Communication Disorder and with clients who struggle with social communication weaknesses.
Social Communication Disorder
Social Communication Disorder is an impairment of pragmatics (use of language) and is diagnosed based on difficulty in the social uses of verbal and nonverbal communication in regular communication contexts. The effects of these limitations on social relationships and discourse comprehension, cannot be explained by a language disorder or general cognitive ability.
At Well Said: Toronto Speech Therapy, we have the experience and dedication to help you achieve measurable results and improved social communication that you can use in your real life. Using an evidenced-based and adult-centric approach, we will work with you, using the latest research to achieve your social interaction goals.
