CHADD of New York is proud to present:
ADD and Social Skills: What makes social skills so difficult and how you can help your child
Presented by Juliet Melamid, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Monday, December 2, 2013
Behaving in a socially skilled manner means not just knowing what to do and say, but knowing what to do and say based on your understanding of the situation and the people in the situation. Sound complex? It is!!
Peers often see children with ADD as annoying, argumentative, too loud and too talkative. Children with ADD often see themselves as friendless and clueless. What makes friendship so tough for children and teens with ADD? What can we parents do to help our children learn the skills they need to make and keep friends more easily?
At this workshop Juliet will describe the social skills needed to make and keep friends, explain what typically gets in the way of social success, and provide parents with specific tools they can use to work on social skills at home and out in the community. Juliet will provide “real life” strategies and examples based on her many years directing FriendSmarts, a social skills program for children and teens.
Join us for an exciting evening where you will learn why social skills are so difficult and how you can help your child.
