Training in Core Social Skills©
... In the Classroom
From our very popular AND successful Training in Core
Social Skills© program for children and teens, comes a new workshop for educators to help all students become more informed, confident and skilled at interacting in a socially successful way!
Since beginning our Training in Core Social Skills© programs for children, parents and educators have seen significant gains in confidence and social interaction skills by our program participants. So much so they've asked us to teach them how to use our methods with their entire class or student body.
We’re now ready to offer these coaching strategies to those working with students in schools on a daily basis. Participants will learn proven hands-on methods for coaching children in Core Social Skills© as well as how to integrate these methods into their daily language and classroom routines to benefit all their students and enhance the cooperative and collaborative environment of the classroom!
Who should attend?
Participants will include elementary school administrators, counsellors, special needs facilitators, teachers, educational assistants, recess and lunch supervisors, and anyone at your school who works with your students!
Date: January 26, 2018 – 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Cost: $325/participant (incl. light lunch & refreshments)
(10% discount for school groups of 3 or more and those registered by Sept. 30. 2017).
