Child Social Skills Program, Fall 2012

Children who have Learning Disabilities often have difficulty with social interaction at school and at home. Difficulties with social interaction can cause a child to feel lonely and depressed, which then impacts their performance academically, and can continue to impact their relationships with others.

A collaborative program between LDEdmonton and Corinne Eckert Child & Adolescent Psychology offers a 10 week social skills program for children 8-12 years old.
In this program, children will learn how to make and keep friends by learning and practicing:
  • What makes a good friend and how to be a good friend;
  • Listening Skills;
  • Reading Feelings;
  • Having a Conversation;
  • Questions and Compliments;
  • Problem Solving;
  • Strong Emotions (anger and anxiety);
  • Put Downs and Teasing.
