How to make my 3 year old son speak to peers and adults

My son use expressions while communicating to his peer group, teachers and adults.. but with some people whom he is comfortable he is complete chatter box. But in school he only interacts with expressions with both teachers and his peer group.At home with 2 friends he is very comfortable and he speaks with them but with other kids he will not.
Consulted speech therapist and she said his speech is fine as per age but has developed a shell not to speak.. How can I override this?

Consider talking to your School Counselor about social peer groups, to help your son feel more comfortable with conversation outside of the home.
