social_skills_picUPDATE: The workshop has been postponed because of the snow day. We’ll let you know as soon as it is rescheduled.
On Thursday, March 5, there is going to be a workshop to help parents help their children with social interactions. It’s called The Art of Social Language and it is being sponsored by C.H.I.L.D., Children Having Individual Learning Differences, which provides support to Verona children facing learning challenges.

What is social thinking? It is what we do when we interact with people. We think about them, and how we think about people affects how we behave, which in turn affects how others respond to us, which in turn affects our own emotions.
