Social Skills

 
There are four types of professionals who work with children with social issues; Licensed Social Worker, Psychologist, Speech Language Pathologist, and Behavioral Specialist

Licensed Social Workers, or licensed clinical social workers, work with clients to help deal with issues involving mental and emotional health. There are many different specialties that a clinical social worker can take, so try to pick one that tailors to your child’s needs.

Psychologists also work with clients to help deal with issues involving mental and emotional health. But instead of being licensed by the state, they work with a company or practice.

Speech Language Pathologists are speech therapists that specialize in the evaluation and treatments of communication and swallowing disorders.

Behavioral Specialists work to modify behaviors that impede a person’s lifestyle and try to replace those behaviors with positive ones.
