Social Skills for Children

Teach your child how to get an adult's attention

Suggestions to try at home

Try to show the correct way and display how to properly get your attention from another person/child/adult. This will put in the child's head that if they need something they know how to act and ask to get information or a need from an adult.

Practice at School

Provide a correct example to get attention from some one. Try to contact them the same way you would like them to contact others. Such as

  • Tapping on the shoulder
  • Looking at them eye to eye
  • Stand near them and speak clearly


It is critical that you let them learn this important behavior. It will make communication much easier and problems should be more smooth. It's better than them kicking and screaming on the floor, than to them calmly asking what they want or need.
