Learners will be able to identify their emotions and apply coping strategies as needed.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a focus on behavior and a master’s degree in Special Education. I have over 15 years of experience working in the school setting as well as teaching online. I have worked with students that have a wide range of needs from ages 3-16. Throughout my career, I have run social skills groups to help students identify emotions and build social skills that can be applied in their everyday life.
Materials Needed: Week 1: *2-3 balloons that your child can blow up. Make sure they are NOT helium ballons are these are very difficult to blow up. I usually find my balloons at the dollar store.
