Social Pragmatic Language
Pragmatics refers to the use of language. These sessions are designed to target critical conversational skills to children who exhibit awkward prosody, tone, or inflection of speech. In addition, they may have difficulty following or maintaining a topic, sequencing/organizing thoughts, and interpreting figurative language during social conversations. These sessions are appropriate for children ages 7-16.
