. Changes are made gradually. Reinforce the whole process, in this way we favor the final result. Let's not lose patience. All changes require time and a lot of dedication.- We will not underestimate or compare him
with another brother, cousin or friend with more abilities than him. - We will not allow him to isolate himself from others
. We will provide situations where you can get used to social contacts, such as extracurricular activities, go with him to parks, gardens, sports clubs ... When we go to these sites, we will not let you download a console or game that allows you to play alone. Let's favor their integration with the other children.- Let us strive to show ourselves safe and extroverted
. We know that children learn by modeling. Let's practice our social skills in front of them, in this way we will teach them much more than with any speech. Let's be your best example.- Let's train everyday situations with the child haciendo, doing a 'role-playing' of how to ask to participate in a game, in which we will show you how to do it. Practicing this behavior provides children with the confidence to behave in this way in real life. Mar - Mark some objective and possible goals
, that are neither very low nor very high, but that we know that at first you can achieve. In this way we will increase their self-esteem and security and strengthen their social skills.- Encourage your independence

It is a great encouragement to their self-love when they see themselves as responsible and independent.- Look for extracurricular activities that you like and where you can excel. Let's help him see his abilities.
- Since we are little we will introduce our children indifferent social situations so that they may know other realities
. It is not advisable that the only social frequency is going to see the family. - Let's invite your friends home
. In this context he feels more secure, this is his territory. He will take out the games he masters and this will make it much easier for him to interrelate with the other children and put the skills learned into practice.
