Kids who don’t intuitively know when to “pass” a conversation along to another person run the risk of being socially isolated. Once a child gets a reputation for going on and on and on, it can be hard for some friends to want to be with them. Why Social Timing is Difficult to Teach Over the past 15 years, I have been co-leading social skills programs. While I address a range of social challenges in our groups, social timing is one of the trickiest. Here are some of the reasons:

Bumper Crashers! | blog Just about every teacher, parent, and therapist I know (and that’s a LOT) have commented on kids who lean on others, talk too close, crash into other kids, and touch things that don’t belong to them. They invade spatial boundaries without meaning to and alienate others so fast they don’t know what happened! Funny … alienate has the word “alien” in it and our little bumpers and crashers are often treated as such. The sad thing is, the kids don’t mean to be intrusive; and are doing the best they can.

Eleven-year-old Stephen takes long-acting meds for his AD/HD and still eats anything and everything put in front of him. His 9-year-old brother, Nick, is a different story. He responded to the same type of medication by losing his appetite altogether around lunchtime. What's more, Nick's medication worsened the selective eating that his mother, Lisa, had been coping with for years. Eventually, however, his pediatrician switched Nick to a different time-released medication and he became more interested in eating lunch at home and at school. Even so, he's insisted on bringing the same lunch to school every day for months. Balanced Lunches for ADHD/LD Children | ADDitude - ADHD & LD Adults and Children

As the mother tried to explain what was going on, I struggled to hear her over the commotion. “We’ve been dealing with this for over an hour now.
