The Importance of Having Social Skills

Video Summary

An early intervention teacher discusses the instrumental role of social skills in promoting children's emotional well being and learning.

"Research showing that children who really lack social ability, later in life have higher rates of depression.. Later if this child is unable to make friends, it becomes really hard for them and also children learn through play and learn through social interaction. It is really important for children to be able to attain those skills before they go into pre school and kindergarden so they can be successful in that environment. It is really important for children to develop and make progress in the areas of social interaction. "
