“Why Will No One Play with Me?” — a question every parent and educator fears yet one that has become more prevalent with each generation. Whether you are the parent or educator of a child with learning differences, social integration issues, a victim or instigator of bullying, or just a child navigating the seemingly simple process of growing up, Caroline will introduce parents and educators to the tools they need to become a child’s social skills coach. Referencing a collection of practices, this training can be tailored to age-appropriate social skills and competencies, including communication, problem solving, decision making, self management, and peer relations.

Facilitator: Caroline Maguire, M. Ed.
