Social distancing has isolated and stressed all of us, but it has caused children with ADHD to lose valuable opportunities to practice their social skills, and make and keep friends. Many school administrators and teachers are hard at work implementing programs to address Social Emotional Learning (SEL) during distance learning, but caregivers can also do many things at home to strengthen their kids’ social skills, which leads to not only emotional well-being but also better academic performance.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How to support a child who doesn’t do well making or keeping friends, or who has high social anxiety
- How to develop social, emotion, behavioral skills for a healthier, happier social life
- Strategies to help children feel and show empathy and establish and maintain positive relationships
- Caregiver strategies to help children be socially and emotionally competent
This event, presented by ADDitude, will feature expert speaker Caroline Maguire, M.Ed., ACCG, PCC, who founded and facilitates a comprehensive SEL training methodology (#ConnectionMatters) for adults, parents, clinicians and academic professionals on how to develop critical social, emotional and behavioral skills, in themselves and in others. Through her private practice, publications, lectures and workshops, her mission is to vanquish the devastating effects of feeling different and misunderstood.
