Developing Friendships At Home, School, and in the Community.

The presentation will include models for facilitating friendships for children/adolescents/students in these settings.

  • Tools for improving social skills (i.e.: joining a group, introducing oneself, greeting others, maintaining appropriate eye contact, etc.), affective behaviors (when hugs/affection are appropriate), verbal communication (i.e.: expressing oneself, listening, verifying, considering the other person), and nonverbal communication will be addressed.

  • Role plays and vignettes will be used to promote learning for caregivers. Additionally, strategies for those that have greater difficulty with making friends will be addressed (i.e.: building rapport between friends, video modeling, social stories, etc.)
