Having friends improves wellbeing, attitudes to learning and academic performance. For many children, making and keeping friends is quite effortless, but for some it is a challenge.

The following lists the most common social concerns:

  •         Problems in social communication
  •         Difficulties in social reciprocity
  •         Problems in conversational skills
  •         Friendship issues
  •         Dealing with teasing/ bullying
  •         Lack of assertiveness
  •         Anxiety around social situations
  •         Difficulties in peer relations
  •         Problems in social understanding
  •         Lack of confidence in social situations
