Social Skills in Huntington, NY
So you’re having some difficulties with connecting with others. You watch as the other kids in your class engage in social interactions and activities. You’re a little freaked out about it because you sometimes feel like you don’t know what to say or how to act in these situations. Sometimes your anxiety skyrockets and you wonder how you’ll even get through the day. You worrythat other people might judge you if you say something.
The cool thing about social skills is that they can be taught. Sure some kids just pick them up easier than you have, but imagine feeling more confident in social interactions. You feel a whole lot more comfortable when speaking to others and perhaps start socially navigating outside of your comfort zone. You’ll feel less anxious and more assertive when you’re engaging with others.
