According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, there are three skills involved in social communication:
  1. Using language for various purposes, from greeting, informing, demanding, promising, and requesting
  2. Changing language depending on the context, conversation partner, and location
  3. Following rules, such as initiating and maintaining the topic, turntaking, facial expressions, etc.
The Speech in the Social Context (EDU & SLP) program is a set of interactive exercises supporting the development of communication skills. It is designed to work with children with autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, and other communication difficulties. It can be used in therapy and/or special education classes, individually or in small groups. This program consists of two parts (emotions and communication) divided into several units. In the Speech in the Social Context (EDU & SLP) program, the child has the opportunity to practice expressive language skills within social contexts in a variety of digital activities. The program’s design allows for multiple repetitions including slight modifications to prevent memorization, otherwise known as the learning effect. Also, there are animated images and music that reinforce correct responses.
