In this course, I will partner with your learner to develop a personalized approach for addressing their anxieties and insecurities about being excluded. We will discuss how to identify someone with the characteristics of a good friend and touch on different ways to find children with those characteristics. By the end of this introductory course, learners will have five handy tools they can use while at school or in other socially awkward situations. Your learner will be encouraged to...
I am not a therapist nor do I pretend to be one. Information provided in this course is readily available from other resources.
No "homework". Activities to reinforce what was discussed will be made available to the learners for use after class.
Learners will need access to a microphone (built-in computer mic is fine) and a camera to allow for practice during class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents, would you be able to ensure your child's microphone is set up appropriately? It is extremely frustrating for the kids when I have to repeatedly ask them to speak louder. In addition, it is fine for you to be in the room; however, would you be able to refrain from talking to your child during class. It is distracting when I am trying to have a discussion with them or give them instructions. If there is a particular conflict that you would like me to address, please send me a message one day prior to the class. Thanks, in advance, for your help! NOTES: 1) Parents always ask if my classes are appropriate for their children. My answer is that your child should have an opportunity to practice his or her social skills and this is a safe place to do that. Their social skills will not improve if they are not given opportunities to use them. 2) This class WILL take place if there is only one learner. 3) [***Transfers will not be made within 24 hours of the class start time. No exceptions.***]
