They talk too much.

His friends don’t want to include him in their activities.

Her teachers constantly seem to get annoyed at her because she overreacts to problems.

The above statements are just some that you may hear about people who are having difficulties with social skills. For some  tasks that involve other people can be difficult. Things like forging friendships, dealing with conflict and engaging in conversation do not come naturally.

We specialize in helping people develop skills to be more comfortable socially.

We practice strategies to help communicators in many settings and situation.  Some key social thinking questions are:

  •  What to do when we frustrate friends?
  • What is the  impact of our words on others?
  • Why do other’s points of view matter?
  • How to can I become a flexible thinker?
  • How can I adjust to a new routine?
  • Why we can’t always get our way?

If you or your child would benefit from becoming a stronger social thinker, you’ve come to the right place! SLP Sharon Sokolik has the training, experience and passion to help students make social thinking advances.

Social Thinking Adventures take place year round.  They might be a scavenger hunt at the park, an escape room, a trip to a baseball game or playing board games.  All of these situations (and more!) provide real life opportunities to engage with others while developing and practicing social skills.

We also offer weekly groups for various age levels.  The groups usually meet at our office location. There is a schedule on the Home page. Social thinking challenges can be difficult. We are here to help in any way we can. Please call us at 678-463-6512 or email us at  sharonsokolik@gmail.com.
