Social Skills Assessment

A social skill assessment is a process conducted by a social service worker to evaluate a child's social functioning and behaviour. The assessment helps identify the areas where the child needs support and guidance to improve their social interactions and relationships with peers, family, and society. The assessment may involve the following:

  • Observing the child in different settings.
  • Interviewing the child and their family members.
  • Administering standardized tests or questionnaires.

The social service worker assesses the child's ability to communicate, follow social rules and norms, and handle different social situations. The assessment results in a report that outlines the child's strengths and weaknesses and recommends intervention strategies and activities to support the child's social development. The assessment is essential in providing an accurate diagnosis and developing a personalized plan to help the child overcome social challenges and improve their quality of life.

Social Therapy Services

Our social therapy services promote emotional well-being and enhance social skills. The social worker team works with children individually or in groups, providing support for communication, self-esteem, problem-solving, and emotional regulation. Through activities like role-playing, social skills training, group discussions, and play therapy, we help children develop critical social skills.

We also work closely with parents and caregivers to develop strategies to support their child's social development and address any challenges they may face. Our goal is to improve the overall social functioning of children and enhance their ability to form healthy relationships with peers and adults.
