The communication skills of a teenager are often well developed.

Speech, language and social skills expand through learning opportunities and life experiences. Friendships, relationships, identity and belonging are important during this stage, as are attendance in school and vocational settings. Communication plays a big part in helping a teenager find their place, passion and purpose.
