PSLLC Blog Post Series

Hi! Welcome to PSLLC’s Blog Post Series! We are so excited to share information with you related to all services that we offer, including speech therapy, occupational therapy, psychological services, and executive functioning services. 

This week’s post will cover red flags related to social communication. Social skills are so important for interacting with other people. As a parent or caregiver, we want to share easy and fun ways for you to practice social skills at home! Incorporating activities into family time can greatly benefit your child’s development. Here are 3 fun and interactive games that can strengthen social interactions and create memorable bonding moments for the whole family.

  1. Charades with a Twist: Traditional charades is a classic game that encourages nonverbal communication. Add a twist by incorporating social scenarios or emotions. Instead of simply acting out a word or phrase, participants can act out how they would react in a specific social situation or portray a particular emotion. This targets understanding facial expressions and body language. It works on perspective taking too (thinking about others’ feelings and thoughts). 
  1. Storytelling Circle: Sit in a circle and start a story with a simple sentence. Each family member takes turns adding a sentence to continue the story. Encourage creativity and imagination but also focus on maintaining coherence and relevance to the storyline.This targets story telling, turn-taking, listening comprehension, and the routines of back-and-forth conversation. 
  1. Collaborative Building: Engage in a collaborative building activity, such as building a Lego structure or creating a puzzle together. Encourage communication and negotiation among family members to decide on a plan and work together to achieve the goal. This targets teamwork, problem solving, sharing ideas, and compromising. 

If you are interested in a social skills group for your child, PSLLC can help! Please call our office at 609-924-7080 for more information.
