Supporting Your Child’s Social Self-Esteem
October 8, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20.00
One of the hardest things, as a parent on the spectrum, is watching your child struggle socially and not knowing how to help them. So join us and learn how to support the development of your child’s confidence and self-esteem as they navigate the social experiences of school. Take home the tools you need for successful conversations with your child about: how to handle teasing, talking about bullying, how to focus on optimistic thoughts, and how to be a more “flexible” friend and problem solver. Trust us, this will be an amazing class!
