Social Communication.. Not Socialization

Do you have a child or young adult who struggles interacting with others or just isn’t quite sure what to do in unstructured settings with peers?  He really wants to make friends but has a hard time knowing how?  Social communication skills cover a broad range such as using eye contact, understanding emotions, turn taking, body language, knowing how to change conversational topics, and more.  There is a great deal to know and understand.  Sometimes kids & teens need a little bit of assistance.  You are already teaching all kinds of skills in your homeschool; yes, you can teach this too.
