PFAL Webinar Wednesday Series: Helping Your Student Build Social Skills

Wednesday, December 15, 2021
6:00 pm7:30 pm

Join us as our guest Erin Smithers, Assistant Director, The NJ Self-Advocacy Project, as she discusses how to build social skills in students with IDD in various environments. Students often learn social and communication skills in one setting and have difficulty using these skills in other settings.

Parents often express frustration that there is a mismatch between what their students can do in school and what they can do at home. The purpose of this webinar is to teach students: (1) How to feel confident in a group of people, (2) learn proper socialization techniques, and (3) how students can gain an understanding of new boundaries.
