Description

We all know how important it is for children to build social connections and have relationships that thrive and succeed!

We will show you how to utilize the sensory systems within activity-rich lessons to increase social skills for children with HFA, ADHD and sensory issues.

We will demonstrate sensory activities that create opportunities to increase emotional and sensory regulation that leads to social connectivity. Children will become more confident and comfortable taking social risks, preparing them for future real-time social interactions.

You will learn specific strategies to build social competency:

  • Reading nonverbal and verbal social cues
  • Executive Functioning Strategies
  • Making Theory of Mind concrete
  • Selective Attention
  • Social Sense Habits of the Week

Come experience and learn strategies for kids who struggle connecting with others.
