Workshop Description

This is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE) course that provides healthcare professionals with practical tools to guide children in gaining social competence.

Highlighting the benefits and advantages to having well-developed social skills and demonstrating the difficulties and challenges that arise from a lack of these crucial skills, this course will provide practical tools that teachers and therapists can employ to guide children to overcome their difficulties in the social realm and gain social competence.

While there are hundreds of important social skills for students to learn, this course will highlight various aspects of social skills that children must master to have normative, healthy relationships with the people they encounter every day. This course provides tools and suggestions that, with practice and support, can assist them in managing their social skills deficits to function in society and nurture relationships with the peers and adults in their lives.  


Learning Objectives

  • Define social skills and the importance of social skills in the development of children.
  • List learning disabilities that can impair a child’s ability to develop age-appropriate social skills.
