Parents who have children with social skills challenges often hear their children ask, “Why will no one play with me?” Many children find it hard to make and keep friends, particularly those with ADHD or other social challenges. The webinar is aimed at parents of 11-14 year olds, but the techniques can be used for children of all ages.
This webinar will introduce participants to the tools they need to become their child’s social skills coach. Through step-by-step guidance, parents will learn how to help their child build social skills, use positive social behaviours, and become social problem-solvers.
Caroline Maguire, Med., PCC, will demonstrate the coaching process for participants so they can apply coaching techniques at home. By practicing and using open-ended questions, reflective listening, and praise and prompts, parents will prepare to become their child’s social skills coach. Sara-Jane Soutar, Head of Middle School Learning Support and Cindy Tisdall-McPhee, Middle School Counsellor, will also be on hand to answer questions.
Caroline Maguire MEd, PCC is a family coach with New England Coaching Services and author of ‘Why Will No One Play With Me?’, a book to help parents learn to coach their child through any social issue.
