Ep. 101: Building Your Child’s Social Skills

“Soft skills,” such as communication, teamwork, conflict resolution, and problem solving are important to overall success in life and the process of building them begins early in childhood. Children with ADHD, autism, anxiety disorders, and learning differences often have challenges in developing these crucial skills. That’s why programs and specialists focused on helping children build emotional intelligence and social competence can benefit families greatly.

One such program, Social Bridges, in Central Florida is making a positive impact with social skills training and more.

This episode covers:

  •  The Social Bridges program 
  • Warning signs that your child may need more social support
  • How parents can build positive peer relationships and social competence skills in their kids
  • Teaching kids how to navigate social media is critical
