Making and Keeping Friends, A Social Skills Challenge for Kids with ADHD
Tuesday, January 7, 2020, 7 – 8:30pm
Children with ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders can be bright, sweet and funny, but also bossy, intrusive, inflexible, and controlling—all of which wreaks havoc on their friendships and peer relationships.
Mary Coakley, Ph.D. is a Clinical Developmental Psychologist and has been developing and running Social Skills groups at the Growth Opportunity Center in Southampton PA for over 10 years. She will give an overview of the challenges that our children experience in their social relationships, share what the current research says about treatment, and provide some practical tips and resources for parents who want to equip their children with the best possible tools for making and keeping friends. She will mediate a discussion about programs and agencies in the BuxMont area who offer social skills services, so bring information from any organizations that have been helpful to your child.
