On October 18th, 2018 at 6pm, Cannizzaro Integrative Pediatric Center welcomes all parents to a FREE in-office event, Social Skills Deficits: Tools Parents Can Use. Join Carol Miller, LCSW as she presents an interactive workshop designed to equip parents with specific social skills coaching techniques to try at home.
Ms. Miller will provide you with an increased understanding of the complex issue of social skills deficits and your role as an important teacher and coach to your kids. You will leave with specific tools to use and a suggested reading list.
Improving Social Skills Deficits for All Ages
This workshop has been designed to be appropriate for parents of children of all ages, whether neurotypical or diagnosed with autism, learning disabilities or ADD / ADHD.
Many parents make the mistake of “rescuing” their children from social skills mistakes, especially if they have been diagnosed with autism, ADHD or learning disabilities. While it may seem helpful to spare a child from embarrassment and frustration, this reaction does not help a child thrive and grow into an independent adult.
If you want to provide healthy and proven social skills support to your child, join us on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 6pm and bring all your questions about this unique topic! To make the workshop most relevant to attendees, we will be sending a quick survey to those who RSVP and adjust the workshop with some age-specific content.
What You Will Discover About Improving Social Skills Deficits:
- Why social skills are an issue concerning ALL kids today.
- How social coaching can impact your child’s success.
- Why “rescuing” your child from social missteps is a mistake—and what to do instead.
