SOCIAL COMMUNICATION DISORDERS

Social communication behaviors such as eye contact, facial expressions, and body language are influenced by sociocultural and individual factors (Curenton & Justice, 2004; Inglebret, Jones, & Pavel, 2008). There is a wide range of acceptable norms within and across individuals, families, and cultures.

According to ASHA "Social communication disorder is characterized by difficulties with the use of verbal and nonverbal language for social purposes. Primary difficulties are in social interaction, social cognition, and pragmatics. Specific deficits are evident in the individual's ability to

  • communicate for social purposes in ways that are appropriate for the particular social context;

  • change communication to match the context or needs of the listener;

  • follow rules for conversation and storytelling;

  • understand nonliterate or ambiguous language; and

  • understand what is not explicitly stated."
