I don't think anything works in absolutes, but I would argue the only kids who don't need it are kids who regularly socialize with kids their own age in other ways.
To me, that's the most important thing. One thing I do know is that if a kid lacks social skills putting it off may seem like the best thing for them, but it's probably not the best thing long term.
Of course, they could have some developmental disorder or something like that as well.
Nothing is absolute.
