‘Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.’
Social skills are the ‘stuff’ we use to communicate and interact with each other. This interaction can be simultaneously verbal and non-verbal through use of gestures, body language and facial expressions. Human beings are sociable creatures and we have developed ways to communicate with others in order to build relationships.
