Getting From Me to We
How to Help Young Children Fit in and Make FriendsBook - 2015
There are many reasons why some children struggle to make friends and find themselves on the sidelines, in timeout, or ignored by their peers. For them, having a playdate or participating in a group activity does not come naturally. If you are the parent of a socially at-risk child, you can do more than you might think to help your son or daughter overcome these challenges. Getting from Me to We teaches you about the underlying causes of social skill delays and how to identify where your child is develop-mentally on the social skills ladder. It includes profiles of children who illustrate a wide variety of isolating behaviors, along with parent-child activities that encourage joint attention, eye contact, social interaction, and other foundational skills that are necessary to form connections and friendships. These methods can benefit all children aged 3 to 7 who are struggling with social skills with or without diagnoses such as autism, ADHD, anxiety, or language deficits.
