Social (Pragmatic) Communication Disorder

Social (Pragmatic) Communication Disorder is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties with the pragmatics (e.g., the social use of language) of communication. This may include difficulties with the back-and-forth of communication, not greeting others, speaking similarly to a friend and an adult, understanding and using nonverbal communication. These differences impact not only communication, but also an individual’s ability to make friends and their academic and/or occupational achievement.
