Training in Core Social Skills© ... for Parents!
From our very popular AND successful Training in Core Social Skills© program for children and teens, comes a new workshop for parents whose children experience difficulties in social interaction:
Training in Core Social Skills© . . . for parents!
We know that children can have difficulty interacting with others:
● They may miss the subtle nuances of social interaction,
or what we call social cues. We call this the “hidden
conversation”, the part of the message made up of all
the nonverbal ways we communicate.
● They may have difficulty with communication skills:
listening and responding appropriately to others to
keep the conversation “flowing” or understanding the
“conversational manners” that make the conversation a
positive experience for both parties.
● They may have difficulting with emotional control,
knowing how to handle problems involving peers, or
being able to engage in effective conflict resolution.
● And finally, some children are not aware that our
behaviour impacts others and that successful social
interaction also involves understanding what is
“expected” in social situations.

In the Training in Core Social Skills© program, our goal is to help children gain skill and confidence in social interaction! As parents, you will be able to support the social development of your child by learning:
● The different types of social skill difficulties
and why your child may be struggling.
● The key social skills your child needs to
understand. There’s more to it than
● A coaching perspective and language to
increase your ability to intervene and coach
your child effectively.
● Teaching your child “expected” behaviour in
social interactions such as play,
conversations and work with peers.
● Preparing your child for successful social
● Facilitating safe and guided practice
● Strategies to help your child integrate social
skills into their pattern of behaviour, as well
as applying them to other environments.
