Social skills classes for children offered this summer

The Vanderbilt Pediatric Speech and Language Clinic is offering social skills classes this summer.

The classes will be taught by speech-language pathologists specializing in communication skills for preschool and school-age children. The children will be grouped by similar age and developmental level.

Social skills groups are for children who have difficulty communicating with other children and/or adults during recreational and leisure time activities at home or school.

In order to enroll in a social skills group, children must have been assessed by a speech-language pathologist within the last year and determined to have a social skills deficit. For more information, contact Charles Hausman at charles.h.hausman@vanderbilt.edu.
