Friends & Feelings: Social Skills Program
Help your child master the art of friendship and handle all of its ups and downs
Learning to Build Lasting Connections
Give Your Child the Keys to Unlock the Magic of Friendship
Connecting with other people and forming healthy relationships are essential parts of a fulfilling life, but for children and teens who have a learning disability, ADHD, or mild ASD, making and maintaining friendships can be a major struggle.
We know that, as a parent, you want your child to laugh, smile, play, and experience the joy of bonding with other kids, and that’s why the Friends & Feelings Social Skills Program is designed to help you teach your child how to share, handle their emotions, lose gracefully, and be a good friend.
Working alongside your child, you’ll practice the skills of cooperative behaviour, negotiation, conflict resolution, and emotion regulation so that they’ll feel confident about meeting new people and making friends.
Teaching from Experience and from the Heart
