hello old friends.

have just been talking elsewhere with a lady whose 10 year old is struggling.
She's already read "Unwritten Rules of Friendship" and other books.

Does anyone know whether quality support is available anywhere for kids approaching secondary school with social skills struggles (but all sub-clinical so no dx likely - he's had no intervention before).

is special educational needs register the way to go perhaps?

'Social skills' is a big subject. Is there anything specific that she's looking for? I've probably got some AS related stuff I could email you but that might not be what is needed.

Is there a bullying issue? Got some good books on that.

School might run a social skills club - or a pyramid club.

He doesn't need to be on the SEN register to go to the pyramid club, so it is worth speaking to the SENCO and see what school offers.
