Successful Friendships are Possible! - Hampton Inn
September 23, 2013 - Jericho

"No one would sit next to me at lunch, I wasn’t invited to Dylan’s Birthday party and everyone calls me weird." As parents we worry when we see our children having such a difficult time making friendships and getting along with others. The bottom line is that the social world is complex. Some of our children just don’t process social information the way their peers do. They miss some of the vital cues and clues needed to navigate the world. By realizing where the missing pieces are, and working on that, our children can learn how to make successful relationships. Please join us as we explain why the social world is so difficult for some of our children to navigate and what we, as parents, can do to help. Followed by Q & A with presenters Cindy Goldrich, Evelyn Kashinsky and Lisa Rothman Freeman About the Presenters: Cindy Goldrich, Ed.M.
