Helping Teach Social Skills in Calgary

For a child with ADHD, autism disorder, or other disorder, developing social skills can be a difficult challenge. They may be anxious or shy, or even have no interest in developing friends or may want them desperately but won’t know how to make them. The Family Psychology Place is where children can get support for developing social skills in Calgary. Issues with social skills can have a lifetime impact, so we aim to give these children the support they need from an early age.


Kids who struggle socially have been in many social situations but continue to struggle. Social skills groups just repeat these experiences and rarely work unless the child is ready and the groups are properly designed and guided. We work on individual counseling first, creating readiness, and then introduce them to groups to help them apply these social skills.

We want to see long-term results, so we teach how to think in social situations. We also teach emotional regulation tools to help children cope with strong emotions and impulses that can impact friendships.

Some of the things we work on in social skills counseling include:

  • Reading social cues 
  • Making friends
  • Keeping friends 
  • Impulse control
  • Dealing with conflict 
  • Seeing other viewpoints
  • Eye contact 
  • Tone of voice
  • Conversation skills
  • Confidence
  • Language skills

Social Skills Groups

These sessions are aimed at increasing awareness and building skills in the areas of:

  • Perspective taking
  • Conversation skills
  • Emotional regulation
  • Problem solving

Learning will be implemented through teaching concepts and intentional practice of these new skills through structured, facilitated activities during the session.
