So, this may not have a lot to do with social skills but if you have a child with a lot of anxiety that interferes with their social. academic life here is something that may help. Lemon Balm works in the same part of the brain as valium...but with no side effects and is in fact good for you. It is in the mint family so it grows easily and tastes yummy. Here is a link for a lemon balm aid recipe and lemon balm tea. http://www.herbalinfusions.net/blog.html Lemon balm tastes like lemons without the tartness. It may be helpful for kids with anxiety (or parents feeling anxiety).
